New Delhi, Apr 1 (UNI) Delhi High Court asked Delhi Police today to produce by April 21 two minor girls missing since December 19 last year.
Hearing a writ petition by the mother of the girls, a Division Bench headed by Justice Vikramjit Sen and PK Bhasin ordered the police to produce the sisters called 17-year-old Momin and 4-year-old Reshma by April 21.
Accusing two persons Gaurav and Prabhakar Shinde of luring both her daughters, petitioner Salma Bano prayed for the investigation to be conducted by such independent agency as the crime branch or special cell.
The petition mentions that the police registered the case much later, stonewalling every attempt to get a case registered. Even the investigating officer, she adds, has been persuading the petitioner to withdraw the case.
She expressed fears that her elder daughter may have been forcibly married to Prabhakar Shinde, a married man who she believes to be three times as old as her daughter.
