Uttar Pradesh: Youth comes to Aligarh court to marry a girl from another faith, thrashed & taken to ‘thana’

AGRA: A Muslim youth, 21, was allegedly abused and beaten inside the court premises in Aligarh where he had come with a girl, also 21, to get legally married on Thursday. In a set of videos shared on social media platforms, the youth was purportedly seen forcibly taken away by a bunch of policemen in an e-rickshaw.

In the other video, the girl was also seen taken away by women constables as she continued to shout that she was not a minor and wanted to live with the youth.

Local police refused to divulge the details about the reason for their detention. The girl, who is from another faith, had come from Chandigarh for the marriage. While the youth, Sonu Malik, is a local.

Malik works in Haryana’s Ambala district, where he is said to have met the girl. They were taken to Aligarh’s Civil Line police station. But, by Thursday night, no FIR was registered. When contacted, circle officer (CO) Anil Samaniya told TOI, “The matter is being inquired in details.”

The incident comes against the backdrop of row surrounding the UP’s new anti-conversion law. State police have so far booked three persons of the minority community for trying to lure and convert women of the other faith, that of the majority community.
