|Police rescues 2 Kashmiri women
Milli Gazette Online
Hyderabad: Police rescued two Kashmiri women here from the clutches of kidnappers on March 7 who had come to the city in search of employment. The arrest of kidnappers brought to light an abduction racket involving mostly poor women who were abducted and then married off to Arab Sheikhs in the Middle East.
Shafika Begum, 26, Munna Begum, 18, and Gulbahar Begum, 28 came to Hyderabad from Jammu on February 21 with Shafika’s husaband Alam Hussain. On reaching Nampally station, Alam telephoned his acquaintance in the city, Mohammed Hussain, an auto-rickshaw driver, who had promised him help. Hussain soon turned up with other accomplices and forcibly took away the three women to an unknown destination in the old city.
Shafika, however, managed to escape the day after and reported the incident to the police. The police kept track of the mobile phone calls made by Hussain to his associates and after four days the police succeeded in nabbing the culprits and rescuing the women. They were to be sent to Mumbai and then to Dubai but the timely intervention of the police saved them from an ugly situation of being married off to Arab Sheikhs, said the police.
