Women kidnapped for marrying

Mumbai: In good news for a Mankhurd-based Muslim man, his Hindu wife on Wednesday informed the Bombay High Court of her willingness to continue living with her husband and his family. This comes after the woman was allegedly kidnapped by her parents, who opposed the ‘inter-caste’ marriage. The woman, a native of Mangalore, was produced before the division bench of Justice Bhushan Gavai and Justice BP Colabawala, who were hearing the habeas corpus petition of her husband Iqbal Chaudhary. “After they got married, the wife’s family went to Iqbal’s house and threatened them; later, a group of men too barged into the house and made similar threats. While the couple were spending some time together in Vashi, the wife was kidnapped by some unknown persons, who Iqbal claimed were from her family,” said advocate Hasnen Qazi, who represents Iqbal in the court.
