By Muslim Mirror Staff

New Delhi: A 24-year-old Sikh woman, who filed a police complaint on 29 June alleging that she was forcefully converted by two Muslim brothers and married to one of them, withdrew her allegations while recording her statement before magistrate in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar, reported The Indian Express.

“In her statement before the magistrate, the woman denied all charges levelled against the two brothers. She even denied having married [one of] the accused, and claimed she got the FIR lodged following pressure by some Hindu organisations,” said the Station House Officer (SHO) of the police station concerned, adding that she did not name any outfit.

The two Muslim men had been booked for rape and fraud and charged under the states anti-conversion law on the basis on her complaint. The woman had accused one of the men in her neighbourhood of preparing false documents to present her as a Muslim woman eligible for “nikah [Muslim marriage]”.

The man the woman had claimed she was married to is in jail at present, while his brother is absconding. The police are reportedly planning to move court to request the release of the accused from jail.
