No bail to labour trafficking ‘kingpin’

The high court dismissed the bail application of Abdul Kareem Rahman Qureshi, the prime accused in the sensational abduction and murder of a man. 

Qureshi, also known as Naresh Patil, hails from Mumbai and was arrested from a hotel in Yelahanka in northern Bengaluru.  According to police, Qureshi ran a human trafficking racket that came to light after his gang allegedly killed Surendra Pal Singh, from Punjab, in December 2017 in Bengaluru and disposed of his body near Ramanagaram. 

Qureshi had promised Singh a job in Canada but instead brought him to city. He took him hostage, demanded Rs 20 lakh and killed him when he refused to pay. The police say Qureshi ran a labour trafficking racket, bringing young men from North India and Bangladesh to Bengaluru.
