The case against Tasleem Ali

Narottam Mishra, Home Minister, Madhya Pradesh, issued a statement in which he said, “As per the report of the Home Department, the man was selling bangles using a Hindu name while he was from some other religion. There were two Aadhaar cards on him, allegedly fake. There is a ritual of women wearing new bangles during Saawan month. The issue between two sides started from there.”

In the complaint filed against Ali, a minor girl has complained that he came to their house around 2 PM on Sunday, when her father was away. She further said that Ali concealed his identity to sell bangles to her and identified himself as Golu, showing a “half-burnt” Aadhaar card. She said, “He came to our house around 2 PM on Sunday when my father was away. He identified himself as Golu and showed a half-burnt Aadhaar Card. We began purchasing bangles from him. As my mother went to fetch money, the bangle-seller looked at me in an indecent way and grabbed my hand, saying, ‘I’ll help you wear bangles’. He also inappropriately touched my cheeks.”

The victim further added in her complaint that she screamed when he touched her. The mother of the victim got alarmed and ran to her rescue, after which Ali allegedly threatened the girl and ran away. The neighbours and local residents grabbed him. Based on the victim’s complaint, Indore Police registered a case under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) and IPC sections 420 (cheating) and 471 (using fake documents as real ones), among others.

The case of fake identity cards

According to the Police, Ali was found in possession of fake documents. He was carrying two Aadhar cards. One had the name “Asleem, son of Mor Singh”, and the second one had “Tasleem, son of Mohar Ali”. Ashutosh Bagri, Superintendent of Police, said, “Cops have found two Aadhaar cards of different names from the carry bag of Ali besides a burnt voter identity card in which his name was not clear. But in the column of father’s name, ‘Mohan Singh’ is printed on it.” The Police also found a voter ID card in his possession in a different name.

Tasleem claims all identity cards are real

Aminul Khan Suri, Congress Spokesperson, Madhya Pradesh, shared a video of Ali.
