Twist in Bengaluru 'love jihad' case, woman techie enacted drama as boyfriend dumped her, say police

Bengaluru, Sep 26 (IANS): The Bengaluru love jihad case alleged by a woman techie against her former boyfriend, also a software engineer from Jammu and Kashmir, turned out to be a drama enacted by her to frame him.

Investigations revealed no love jihad angle to the case and that the woman had made false allegations after being dumped by her boyfriend, police said on Monday.

Though the love jihad charges against the accused man were dropped, charges of rape, cheating and criminal intimidation will be probed, they added.

During the probe, the police found that the complainant woman from Bengaluru and the accused from Kashmir had broken up two years ago.

Recently, the man got engaged to another girl.

Unable to accept it, the woman, who is five years his senior, had made love jihad allegations against him, police said.

The police had arrested 32-year-old Mojeef Ashraf Baig from Jakura in Srinagar of Jammu and Kashmir last week following the complaint by the woman techie.

He was arrested on charges of rape, unnatural sex, criminal intimidation and cheating.

The woman software professional had claimed that the man -- with whom she was in a relationship -- forced her to adopt Islam. She also alleged that the accused, after promising to marry her, exploited her sexually "as part of love jihad".

A special team of police was sent to Jammu and Kashmir to apprehend the accused considering the sensitivity of the issue.

The FIR has been booked against Mojeef Ashraf Baig, who used to reside at Shikaripalya in Electronics City in Bengaluru.

According to police, the accused had met the techie in Shikaripalya and befriended her. Soon, they began liking each other and entered into a relationship.

The woman claimed that after Baig promised to marry her, they got physically intimate.

Baig had promised that he would get married to her in court without any religious traditions. She claimed that after they got into physical intimacy, the accused began forcing her to get converted to Islam.

The woman refused to do so, and insisted he stick to his earlier stand.

She also claimed that Morif Ashraf, Baig's brother, called her and issued life threats to her.

The police had also booked a case under the Karnataka Protection of Right to Freedom of Religion Act.

Further investigation is on.

    Sexual intercourse is sacred act to be shared with soul mate within the confines of Holy Matrimony. If you have sex casually then Life will treat you casually. No use crying now this is For Both Men and Women. Smart enough to become techie but naive enough to fall for peaceful elements. Common sense is truly not common. Men and Women should respect and cherish their body. Not share it with any dude and dudette.

    Kudos to Bengaluru police -- they brought matters to a fair and logical conclusion -- many BJP leaders as usual jumped into conclusions. -- WE FIND NEEDLESS USE OF THE PHRASE LOVE JIHAD -- politically mischievous -- IF IT WAS BJP in power, they would have allowed it to FESTER -- for obvious reasons--

    I failed to understand Indian mentality and Indian laws. If an adult had sex with another adult (with consent), then what is the problem? This might be ethically wrong in one (or both) of them married but legally that can not be wrong. If someone have sex with someone with the promise of marriage/job, then it can not be termed as cheating. You have sex after marriage, simple as that or for a job, it is offering bribe. What is the meaning of cheating here? Were not both parties are part of the act?

    "Promise " is different from government "Guarantee ", one should not indulge in premarital and extramarital...if you "do it" the only guarantee is HIV/AIDS.

    Such cases often go about with circumstantial evidences which are very difficult to fathom the real truth... However women must be careful before getting intimate as any break up will almost never result in rejoining... Now the lady better let go and move on in life... "Chod dein saaree duniya kisee keliye, yeh munasib nahin aadmi keliye... Pyar se bi zaroori kayee kaam hein, pyar sab kuch nahin zindagi keliye"... World is vast and full of better choices....
