Muslim girl saved Hindu classmate from kidnappers

Agra: A 15-year-old Nazia on 8 March was awarded the Rani Laxmibai bravery award by UP Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav, for saving a 6-year-old Hindu girl from kidnappers last August. It was the afternoon on August 7, when Nazia, a student of Saghir Fatima Mohammadia Girls Inter College, was returning home when she heard cries for help from a young girl, Dimpy, who was being forcibly pulled on a motorcycle by two youths. Nazia rushed to the girl’s help and held her hand and managed to pull her away from the kidnappers, who then fled the spot. Recalling the moment, Nazia later said, “It was like a tug of war for two minutes. While they tried pulling her on the motorcycle, I kept pulling her back”, she said adding that the criminals finally gave up and fled. Nazia said she would do the same again if something like this ever happens again. The award also carries a cheque of Rs one lakh.
