A Muslim man introduces himself as Hindu to a Madhya Pradesh based minor girl who came to Maharashtra as a worker. Later he attempted to convert her to Islam. When she refused to convert, the accused along with his three friends raped her. The incident took place in the Muslim dominated Malegaon district of Maharashtra. The victim is 15 years old.
Ujjain’s Additional Superintendent of Police Amrendra Singh said the incident occurred in Malegaon, where the girl had gone to work. “In Malegaon, she met Majid Khan, 23, who introduced himself as Mohit. Khan raped the girl on the pretext of marriage and later tried to get her to change her religion last October. The girl refused to do so, and Majid and three of friends gang-raped her,” Singh added.
“She had a premature delivery in the hospital, but the baby died. It was then that the girl shared her ordeal with another woman in the hospital, who then informed a Hindu organisation and the police about it,” ASP Singh said.
According to the Hindustan Times report, the Police said that we are also taking legal opinion about registering a case in the girl’s home district of Barwani in Madhya Pradesh as the MP Freedom of Religion Act will not be applicable in Maharashtra.
