Grooming Jihad in Meerut: A tutor changes his identity to trap a Hindu girl, kidnaps and forces her to convert to Islam

The police arrested the accused and charged him under section 362 (kidnapping) of the Indian Penal Code and relevant sections of the Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Ordinance, 2020.

In another case of alleged Grooming Jihad (Love Jihad) reported from Meerut in Uttar Pradesh, police have arrested a 25-year-old tutor named Amaan who changed his identity to befriend an 18-year-old teenage girl. He had kidnapped her and tried to coerce her to denounce her religion and convert to Islam. Amaan threatened her with dire consequences when she resisted.

Based on contact tracing, the Meerut police traced the location of the victim and the accused and recovered the two from a locality in Delhi. The police recorded the statement of the victim in front of the magistrate, in which she confessed that Amaan forced her to convert her religion.

After recording the statement, Meerut police handed her over to her family. The police arrested the accused and charged him under section 362 (kidnapping) of the Indian Penal Code and relevant sections of the Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Ordinance, 2020, the law Yogi Govt passed recently to tackle the growing menace of Grooming Jihad in Meerut and various other areas of Uttar Pradesh.

According to Meerut police, the incident took place in Shastri Nagar in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. The accused Amaan taught in a coaching centre, where the victim, the daughter of a Hindu businessman, went to study. Amaan introduced himself as a Hindu and befriended the teenage girl while tutoring her. He then reportedly asked her to elope with him. Forcing her to denounce her religion and adopt Islam, Amaan allegedly told the girl that he would marry her after her religious conversion. When the girl refused, Amaan threatened to kill her younger brother.

Fearing the consequences, the girl agreed to flee with Amaan, who then took her to Delhi on February 2 (Tuesday). There he pestered her to accompany him to Jama Masjid, where he had plans to convert her to Islam. However, before Amaan could carry through his plans, Meerut police rounded him up and brought them back to Meerut.

Actually, after the girl went missing on Tuesday, the victim’s family approached the police to file a missing complaint. In the complaint, they named Amaan as the prime suspect.

As news of the incident spread, Bajrang Dal and Hindu Jagran Manch activists also gathered outside Nauchandi police station and urged police to take strict and prompt action in the case.

Based on the complaint, Meerut police registered a case of kidnapping under Section 362 (kidnapping) of the IPC and initiated efforts to trace the victim and the accused.

The police traced the mobile phones of the accused and the victim. The investigation led the police to a locality in Delhi. “We brought her to Meerut and then arrested Amaan. We have also added the relevant section of the UP anti-conversion ordinance to the FIR after she recorded her statement before the magistrate and alleged that Amaan forced her to convert at a mosque in Delhi,” media reports quoted police as saying.
