Gurgaon, June 1 (IANS) A nine-year-old girl has been abducted by a middle aged man to ‘marry’ her. Her parents, who met the Gurgaon police commissioner on Monday to seek help, are spending sleepless nights fearing he may push her into prostitution.
The class four student of Manesar government school was abducted allegedly by 40-year-old Pradeep Kumar on May 11. Her father works as a sweeper at a car manufacturing plant in Manesar area.
“We registered an F.I.R. at Manesar police station on May 12 against Pradeep Kumar under sections 363 (kidnapping) and 366 (inducing woman to compel her marriage) of Indian Penal Code. But police took no action,” Ram Darshan, the girl’s relative, told IANS.
Kumar, a father of three children, also works as a sweeper at another factory in the same area. Both the families hail from Uttar Pradesh’s Mirzapur area and are residing in Aliyar villge here in rented accommodation. The accused knew the girl’s parents.
After abducting the girl, he informed the family that he had married her and now she was his wife. ‘Don’t waste your money and time in search of us’, he said.
“We want that IPC sections of rape and POCSO Act should be added to the F.I.R. We are afraid the accused will sell the child or will push her into prostitution.
“We are visiting the police station everyday for justice but the police say they are helpless,” the relative added.
