Army man tries to abduct girl in J&K, arrested


By Muslim Mirror Desk,

Srinagar: As the state is yet to come out of the shock of horrific rape and murder of 8 year old girl Asifa, a serving army personnel allegedly tried to abduct a minor girl in Poonch district’s Mendhar area of Jammu and Kashmir.


Identified as Gulshan Singh of Dasba village in Hoshiarpur district of Punjab, the army man also tried to attack a policeman. However, the police managed to arrest him on Sunday.

Reports suggest that Singh was posted in Balakote sector along the Line of Control. He was on leave and had come to Mendhar on Friday evening and stayed in a local hotel there.

Singh had allegedly called the girl to the bus station and tried to board a vehicle, but police reached the spot on time before he could flee.

An FIR has been lodged at Mendhar police station, and the girl was sent to her parents.


  1. What has gone wrong? What happened to all the PR work that various central governments did during the past 4+ decades. Were they training persuading the people of J (H) and K (M) to master the trade of co-existence, co-equality, cooperation. Or, just the opposite. Might is right, be it Valley or Jammu. Plus, it is the majoritarianism that will be enforced.
    Think of something that will win the heart and mind of your neighbors for generations. No doubt the examples of abduction, rape, riots, and hiding the crime in the era of empty slogans are now self-destructing the paradise on earth. The sad outcome of all the hypocrisy is now surprising the novice.
