20-year-old Shahid Ali of Sangam Bihar area in New Delhi has been accused of raping a Hindu girl. Shahid Ali did not only rape the girl but even tried to convert her for marriage. Shahib knew the girl from beforehand. The girl was from the Sangam Bihar area where Shahib came to stay on rent a few months back. Shahib changed his name to Rahul for getting the rent in the house. Both of them came to know each other from that point only.
After a few days, Shahid took the girl to his home and there he introduced her to his family members. But then, Shahid forcefully established sexual relationship with her. Later on, both the families agreed for the marriage. However, after marriage, Shahid’s family began to force the girl to convert to Islam.
The girl filed a complaint in the Sarita Bihar Police Station, where she accused the boy of raping her and trying to forcefully convert her religion. Delhi Police registered the complaint under serious sections of rape and forced conversion. The girl has also been asked to go through a medical test. The police have informed that they have registered the case, based on the accusations of the girl and are investigating the matter. They have also said that they will soon apprehend the accused Shahib Ali.
Recently, the cases of love jihad and forced conversions have been on the rise in India. Many state governments have even initiated the process to frame anti-love jihad laws but the criminals don’t seem to care about it at all.
