City cops nab rape accused duo in Gujarat

The police have been successful in nabbing two accused in sexually assaulting a minor girl, from their hideout in Okha in Jamnagar district of Gujarat, on May 17.

Speaking to mediapersons, Superintendent of Police Sharanappa said that the arrested are Basheer (29), son of Mohammed and Radukatte Basheer alias Kadambu Basheer alias Abdul Basheer (23), son of Ibrahim. Another accused Jabbar is still at large.

The SP said that the police had made several attempts to arrest the accused. However, on learning the move of the police, they had fled to Gujarat. The DK police sought the help of Jamnagar and Dwaraka police in nabbing the duo. The Gujarat police had formed a team to arrest the duo and were arrested at Okha.  

The SP said the team of the district crime branch and officials from the Vittal police station went to Okha and brought the accused to Dakshina Kannada. They will be produced before the court on Wednesday and the police will seek police custody to further investigate.

According to the police, two persons allegedly picked up the girl from her house on April 18 and took her to Madikeri and raped her repeatedly. The next day, one of the accused took the girl to his father-in-law’s house, which was empty, and raped her again.

The minor filed a complaint a week later and also alleged  she was threatened and another neighbour Jabbar was asked to keep an eye on her if she  complains to the police.

To a query on political pressure, the SP said that there was no political pressure. Basheer was a truck driver by profession. Kadambu Basheer was involved cylinder and two-wheeler theft cases reported in Sullia, Ullal, Kadaba, Uppala and Puttur rural police station limits.

The SP said that DySP Bantwal, Bantwal Circle Inspector, PSI Raghavendra, DCIB sleuths Sanjeeva, Taranath, Udaya Rai, Praveen, Sundar Raj, Chamaiah and Janardhan were part of the team which nabbed the accused. Appreciation letters will be issued to the police personnel, the SP said.
