BAREILLY: Farhat Naqvi, younger sis­ter of Union min­is­ter of state for par­lia­men­tary af­fairs Mukhtar Ab­bas Navi on Satur­day al­leged that a group of men tried to kid­nap her near Chauki Chau­raha area in Bareilly in broad day­light.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened less than a kilo­me­tre from the of­fice of se­nior su­per­in­ten­dent of po­lice while she was re­turn­ing home.

“I was stand­ing on the side of the road when the men stopped their car near me and tried to pull me in­side it,” Farhat told Hin­dus­tan Times. “A group of women who were with me came for­ward to help and I was saved some­how,” she added.

Chauki Chau­raha is one of the busiest in­ter­sec­tions and even has a women’s po­lice sta­tion. The of­fice of the di­vi­sional com­mis­sioner is also nearby.

Farhat said the per­son driv­ing the car threat­ened her say­ing, “We will see you later.”

“I could not iden­tify the peo­ple who were in the car or the car reg­is­tra­tion num­ber,” she said, adding she was also not sure how many peo­ple were in­side the ve­hi­cle.

She later lodged a com­plaint with the po­lice.

Farhat lives at her par­ent’s home in Bareilly’s Kila area and runs a so­cial group which pro­vides le­gal help to di­vorced women. She had gone to the po­lice sta­tion in con­nec­tion with her work.

The district po­lice have ini­ti­ated pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the kid­nap­ping bid.

“Our team is look­ing into the ev­i­dence to trace the ve­hi­cle and the ac­cused who were in­volved in the in­ci­dent,” se­nior su­per­in­ten­dent of po­lice Jogin­der Ku­mar said.

THE IN­CI­DENT HAP­PENED LESS THAN A KILO­ME­TRE FROM THE OF­FICE OF SE­NIOR SU­PER­IN­TEN­DENT OF PO­LICE WHILE FARHAT WAS RE­TURN­ING HOME.
