GROOM DETAINED 4-DAYS AFTER MARRIAGE
Bride seeks CM’s intervention
Srinagar, June 6: A bride, whose husband was detained 4-days after the wedding, on Monday sought the intervention of the Chief Minister to get her groom released.
Rouf Ahmad Bhat, 21, of Donipawa, Achabal in south Kashmir’s Islamabad (Anantnag) district, was charged with 12 cases pertaining to law and order in 2010 by the police. However, the family described the charges as “baseless” and “fabricated.”
Mehak Rouf, the newly wed wife of Rouf Bhat and her father in law, Nazir Ahmad Bhat, are running from pillar to post to get him released.
“It was the fourth day of our marriage. I left with Rouf and my mother in law Shaheen Begum to the local Janglat Mandi market in Islamabad,” Mehak told Greater Kashmir. “Policemen appeared there and detained my husband. My mother in law and I resisted. They broke her arm and took Rouf along with them.”
Mehak, whose hands are still dyed in henna, said the incident happened 12-days ago. “I appeal the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to intervene and get my husband released,” she said.
The newly wed couple had planned to visit different places, relatives and other scenic spots, but instead the bride is now making rounds of police stations and pleading higher officials to release her groom.
“I approached local Sadder Police Station several times. The officials there told me he had several cases of 2008 pending against him,” the distraught wife said.
“The officials there also told me they would have detained Rouf on the marriage day, but later dropped the idea as it would have looked strange,” she added.
“Police arrested Rouf in 2008 but it could not substantiate the charges leveled against him, following which court ordered his release,” she added.
After his (Rouf’s) release he shifted to Srinagar and had come home recently for marriage. “It is strange that they have booked him in the cases that pertain to 2010. I along with family swear by Allah he was not present here in 2010.”
She also said police had no evidence to back its claim for which he has been charged now.
Mehak said she approached the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) and narrated her woeful tale. “Seeing my henna dyed hands he assured me that he will look into the case of my husband,” she added.
“However, when I was leaving some policemen told me that even if he is released by anybody, we wont release him,” she said. “The tone and the manner in which they spoke were threatening and I broke down.”
Rouf was the lone bread earner of the family. He left the studies in twelfth class just to feed his four younger brothers, his father, mother and his wife.
Now in Rouf’s absence, his father Nazir Ahmad Bhat is working as a labourer to feed his family and to fight his son’s case.
When contacted the SSP, Islamabad (Anantnag) R K Jalla said Rouf has been charged with 12 cases for creating law and order problem in 2010.
“He is on police remand,” Jalla said.
