By Muslim Mirror Staff

New Delhi: The Madhya Pradesh Police have arrested a married Muslim man on charges of rape and under provisions of the Freedom of Religion ordinance. A woman has alleged that he sexually exploited her for four years while hiding his real identity and marital status.

The accused blackmail and pressurised complainant for religious conversion, the woman told Barwani police. Accused has been identified as Sunny alias Sohail, son of Manjur Mansuri.

“On the basis of a written complaint filed by a 22-year-old woman, a 28-year-old man was arrested on Monday on charges of rape and under provisions of the Freedom of Religion ordinance,” Barwani police station in-charge Rajesh Yadav said.

“This is the firstcase in Barwani under the new legislation,” he said.

Yadav said the woman in her complaint alleged that the accused had introduced himself to her as Sunny, and she later came to know that he was a married Muslim man.

The woman then started keeping a distance from him, but he allegedly continued to pressurise her for marriage and conversion, the official said.

Talking to reporters after filing the complaint, the woman on Monday said, “This is an issue of ‘love jihad’, so I made a complaint. The man is a Muslim and got into a relationship with me by posing as a Hindu. He beat me up. He physically exploited me for four years.”

The case falls under the jurisdiction of the district’s Palsud police station and is being transferred there for further action, Yadav said.
