Kupwara:Court convicts minor girl’s kidnapper
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Jan 2: The Principal District and Sessions Judge Kupwara Shahzad Azim has convicted a person accused of kidnapping a minor girl and compelling her to marry in 1999.
“On the basis of unimpeachable and unchallenged testimony of prosecutrix, it is held that prosecution remained successful to prove charge against the accused beyond any shadow of doubt under Section 366 of RPC. The accused is held guilty of kidnapping the prosecutrix and compelling her to marry,” the court observed.
The accused Bashir Ahmad Beigh of Cheerakote Vilgam was accused by the police of kidnapping the victim on 14-08-1999. The victim was 14 years old when the accused had kidnapped her from an orchard with the help of his three associates.
“The accused bundled the victim in a taxi and drove her to Srinagar, where she was kept for a night and subsequently compelled to marry. The victim was recovered two days after occurrence of the crime,” the public prosecutor pleaded.
The court observed that that accusation regarding compelling the victim to enter in martial wedlock with the accused was strengthened on examining the testimony of Dr Waheeda Parveen, Assistant Surgeon Sub District Hospital Kupwara. “The doctor on examination found some scratch marks on the face of the victim,” it said.
