Another bite of Love Jihad in West Bengal

Less than 3 weeks after Hindu Post reported news about a Hindu girl who committed suicide after being tricked by a Muslim boy in West Bengal, the state has again witnessed another case of fraud committed by a Muslim boy to trap a Hindu girl.

Sheikh Rafiqul hailing from Bardhaman district allegedly posted a nude photo of a 10th grader Hindu girl on social media, Bengali-language daily newspaper of ABP group Ebela has reported on it’s website. About a year ago, Sheikh Rafiqul befriended the Hindu girl after introducing himself as Indranil Mukherjee, i.e. a fake Hindu Bengali identity.

Then one day Rafiqul brought the Hindu girl to his relative’s house at Birbhum district under the pretence of outing. The girl was kept captive there for two months and physically assaulted. She was drugged and her nude photos were captured day after day by Sheikh Rafiqul.

The girl managed to make a cell phone call to her home & told them everything. Then Bardhaman thana police rescued her & sent her to a government home. Later she returned to her parents following a court order, the victim Hindu girl told Ebela.

The victim’s family filed a complaint with police in this connection, but police says the boy is in hiding.
After the girl returned home, the accused boy started threatening her to retract her police complaint. He created a Facebook account in the girl’s name & posted her nude photo. The girl’s family is demanding that the administration award strict punishment to the accused Sheikh

Ebela has also posted a video where the girl describes her ordeal.
