The Uttar Pradesh police have arrested Asif Shah alias Nafiz, a resident of Jajmau in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, who had allegedly used occult practices to trap Govind Nagar’s 18-year-old Muskaan.
Muskaan’s mother, Mamata Tiwari, while speaking to OpIndia has also confirmed that Asif alias Nafiz, who had been absconding ever since the case came to the fore, has been arrested on September 6 and sent to jail.
Muskaan’s family had filed a complaint with the local police station in Govind Nagar, Kanpur, accusing a Muslim youth named Asif Shah alias Nafiz of ‘brainwashing’ their daughter with the help of occult practices, physically abusing her, threatening and intimidating her to convert into Islam and marry him.
On the basis of the complaint, Govind Nagar police had registered an FIR against Asif Shah under IPC Section 366 and had been investigating the matter.
Asif referred to his first wife as “apaa” and she, in turn, called him “Bhaijaan”
Speaking about the youth’s arrest, Muskaan’s enraged mother also made other allegations. She said that Asif is a married man with two children. He is 35-years-old, while Muskaan was only 18. He had lied to Muskaan about his previous marriage. In fact, when he took Muskaan to his house he had allegedly introduced his wife as his elder sister.
Mamata Tiwari said that till the time Muskaan lived there, Asif referred to his first wife as “apaa” (elder sister in Urdu) and she, in turn, called him “Bhaijaan” (brother in Urdu). “So deceitful was Asif that he also taught his two children to call him mamu in front of Muskaan”, revealed Mamata Tiwari.
Speaking about her daughter, Mamata Tiwari, in a heavy voice, said that she would take time to recover from the shock.
