Accused In Kidnapping Of Marwari Girl Granted 2 Days Police Custody in Assam

Guwahati: In a most significant development in Marwari girl abduction case, two accused were produced before the CJM Court in Dibrugarh on Friday.

The two accused identified as Abdul Jalil and Abu Zafor.

It is noteworthy that the court granted the police’s request to include sections 120-B/376 IPC and R/w Sec. 4 of the POCSO Act together with the previous section of 366 IPC in the Duliajan Police Station case no. 1/2023.

Moreover, on January 5, the Court permitted Bodiul Jamal (the brother of the primary accused Jahidul Ali) to be detained by police for two days.

The matter has now been sent to the Court of Special Judges, where the judge has granted the police two days to question the two suspects while they are in judicial detention.

However, the main accused Jahidul Ali is still absconding.

Earlier on January 4, police rescued the kidnapped girl from the Char area of Bongaigaon. She was allegedly taken from Duliajan on December 31, 2023.

 “The girl kidnapped from Duliajan – Dibrugarh has been recovered at Bongaigaon and would be reunited with family,” special DG of Assam police GP Singh informed.

As per the complaint filed by the girl’s father Bharat Agarwal, the girl had gone for her tuition classes on December 31st and since then she is missing.

”With due respect. I would like to inform you that – my minor daughter namely Daily Agarwal, age 17 years is missing since 31,12.2022 and in this regard, it was informed to you today morning. But subsequently, we come to know that one Jahidul Ali son of Abdul Jail of the village – Balagaon, under Barpeta Road Police Station of Barpeta District.
