Bengaluru woman accuses man of rape, forced conversion; FIR filed

A woman in Bengaluru has alleged that a Muslim man forced her to convert to another religion and raped her. On the basis of the woman's complaint, a case has been registered under the Anti-Conversion law.

Rama Gupta alleged that Mozif Ashraf Beigh, a man from Jammu and Kashmir, forced her to convert to another religion, and raped her on the pretext of marriage.

The incident came to light when Rama tweeted about it on September 6. "I am a victim of love jihad, rape, unnatural sex and forceful religious conversion. Kindly provide me police help in Bangalore immediately as my life is in danger," she wrote.

She tagged the Bengaluru Police, the Prime Minister's Office, Karnataka Director General of Police, and Commissioner of Police, Bengaluru in her post.

Rama and Mozif were in a relationship when they worked at Wipro in Bengaluru. The woman alleged that Mozif had promised that he would marry her in court. However, in January 2018, the accused allegedly engaged in unnatural intercourse with the woman.

Subsequently, he asked her to convert to another religion before getting married, Rama claimed.

She alleged that later she received threatening phone calls from Mozif's brother, Morif, who warned her to stay away from his brother, or else he would harm her.

A complaint was registered at the Bellandur police station on September 8, and it was transferred to the Hebbagodi police station on September 14. The case was registered under the Karnataka Protection of Right to Freedom of Religion Act, and relevant Sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

"According to what the complainant said, the case seems to be that of love jihad, but we are yet to verify it. We haven't talked to the complainant yet. The case has just been transferred here. We will talk to the complainant and other witnesses," a Hebbagodi police official said.
