Unusual but innovative. I think it would send a strong message in the area and hurt the accused’s family financially pic.twitter.com/PnnGlUfgqN
We reported yesterday how the Meerut police had taken Shamshad into custody and recovered the bodies of both the mother and the daughter from his house.
How Shamshad trapped Priya in Meerut by posing as a Hindu
Shamshad had, posing as Amit Gurjar, allegedly befriended Priya over Facebook in 2013. Both fell in love. The man lured her into marriage and the girl, Priya, who was divorced with a child, left with her two-year-old daughter to live with Amit Gurjar aka Shamshad in Meerut in 2013.
The girl had in the past, also accused Shamshad of raping her. She had lodged a rape complaint against him, which was later disposed of, as she withdrew her complaint on Shamshad’s persuasion.
It was reported that Priya and her daughter had been missing since March 28, 2020. Priya’s friend Chanchal Choudhary, who had lodged a missing complaint, confirmed that she had last spoken to Priya on March 28, after which her phone had been switched off.
Chanchal had revealed that Shamshad, in all these years, had not taken Priya to his family home. They were living in a separate house. Priya had allegedly become aware of Shamshad’s real identity in 2018 and after that their relationship had deteriorated.
The police had, on June 2, forced Chanchal to take back her complaint. However, when Bajrang Dal activist Manish Lohia got to know about the incident, he apprised the Meerut SSP about the same, following which SSP Ajay Sahani started the investigation into the case and arrested Shamshad from his house in Meerut.
