Kolkata, February 22: A minor Hindu girl from Kolkata is in captive since last June due to the idleness of Kolkata Police. Though the police know the location of the girl, out of fear of entering in “sensitive” area the force has not even raided the location. The helpless father of the girl has been compelled to move to Calcutta High Court after which the court has expressed high concern and ordered for immediate action.

As per Sangbad Pratidin report, Vinod Das is a staff of Kolkata Municipal Corporation. Korban Ali and his son Mintu Sheikh abducted Vinod Das’s her minor daughter on 9th June 2017. He has complained that West Bengal police has refused to raid the place to recover the girl citing law & order concerns in a ‘sensitive’ area.

After the death of his wife, Vinod Das’s minor daughter used to stay in Gardenrich’s Meher Manzil area at a close relative’s place. The girl was supposed to sit for the Madhyamik examination. Suddenly from 9th June, she goes missing. When Vinod das came to know that Mintu kidnapped his daughter, along with his neighbors he instantly went to local police station. But eight months have passed by, police has done nothing.

Due to idleness of police, Vinod sought help from judiciary. His advocate Uday Jha has alleged that exact location and phone number of the alleged criminal have been handed over to Police. Judge Debangshu Basak issued a stinging order asking Kolkata’s Joint Commissioner of Police to take immediate action. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for 28th Feb.

Khidirpur- Garden reach- Metiabruz area seems to be a complete isolated island in Kolkata. Even Lalbazar department, highest powerful department of Kolkata police, can’t go for a raid there without permission from higher authorities. Minority appeasement has reached to such a level that life of an innocent girl does not even bother anyone.
