A 26-year-old Hindu man who married a Muslim woman a few months ago approached the Uttar Pradesh Police accusing his wife and relatives of pressing him to embrace Islam.
Ajay Kumar Singh of Faridpur village and Muskaan of Jullupur village were in a relationship before they got married in December against the wishes of their families.
In his complaint to the Aligarh police, Singh alleged his wife threatened to end her life and pin the blame of abetment on him if he did not convert to her religion.
The Aligarh police on Wednesday booked Muskaan, her mother Shehanshah, father Yunus Ali, brother Furquan Ali, and brother-in-law Suhel Khan based on Singh’s complaint.
“An FIR has been lodged against his wife and her four family members. We are investigating the allegations. Legal action will be taken only after we find that the claims made in the complaint are true,” said Sarjana Singh, the Deputy Superintendent of Police of Barla in Aligarh.
According to the police, Singh had first approached the Karni Sena national vice-president Gyanendra Singh Chauhan, who took him to Sarjana Singh.
According to Chauhan, Ajay Kumar Singh told him that he and Muskaan had a fierce fight on March 26 over cooking meat at home. Ajay had asked his wife to not cook meat on the auspicious days of Chaitra Navratri. “The man is terrified and we will come to his rescue because we cannot allow a Hindu to embrace Islam if he or she is not willing to change the religion,” said Chauhan.Most Read 1 Gadar 2 box office collection day 4: Sunny Deol film records biggest Monday collections of all time, nets a total of Rs 173 cr 2 Bigg Boss OTT 2 Finale Live Updates: Elvish Yadav wins Salman Khan’s show, Abhishek Malhan shares message from hospital 3 Happy Independence Day 2023: Wishes Images, Whatsapp Messages, Status, Quotes, and Photos 4 OMG 2 box office collection day 4: Pankaj Tripathi-Akshay Kumar film delivers better Monday than opening Friday, earns Rs 55.1 cr 5 Jailer box office collection Day 5: Rajinikanth film set to cross Rs 350-crore mark worldwide on Independence Day Advertisement
