Jamshedpur: The court of the first class judicial magistrate, Manish Manikant Pradhan on Monday ordered for remand of Mohammed Munna Ashiq to 14 days judicial custody along with his beloved Priya Rani, and Priya’s two minor children by Mango police.
The police had arrested Ashiq late last night after Binod Kumar, the estranged husband of Priya had lodged an FIR against him after arriving from Oman last night, seeking custody of his two children. The court observed that the two children would stay with Priya.
Advocate Shushil Kumar Sharma who was pleading on behalf of Binod said that the matter of taking custody of the two children will be settled in a family court for which he would initiate the legal step soon.
The 34-year-old Binod Kumar, a native of Bhubaneshwar in Odisha working in a company in Oman for over a decade tweeted that his wife Priya Rani and two children (a daughter Anamika and son Aloj) went missing from the Indira Gandhi Airport in Delhi in 2010 and have been traceless since then.
“ It was really shocking that Binod’s wife and his children though were dropped at the Delhi Airport by his in-laws on October 27, 2010 for a flight to Oman via Muscat. Binod was waiting at the Muscat Airport but did not find his wife and children. This prompted Binod to return to India and lodge an missing FIR at Delhi Airport ,” said Binod’s Mumbai based friend, Gopesh.
Gopesh added that in 2014, Binod got call informing that his wife and children are safe and would be returned if he pays Rs 20 lakh. Out of fear, Binod paid the amount in several transactions and simultaneously lodged a case with Delhi police.

Jamshedpur: A 36-year-old man who allegedly staged an abduction drama to swindle the Oman-based husband of his live-in partner of Rs 20 lakh over seven years was arrested late on Sunday night and remanded in 14-day judicial custody on Monday.
Since most of the IPC sections under which Delhi native Mohammed Munna Ashiq has been arrested are bailable, complainant Binod Kumar (34), who works with an MNC in Salalah and reached the steel city on Sunday, has accused his wife Priya Rani’s lover of forcibly converting their two minor children into Islam and thereby, subjecting his son to khatna or circumcision.
The court of first-class judicial magistrate Manish Manikant Pradhan has, however, denied Binod immediate custody of the children. They will continue to stay with Priya (30) in Mango. Advocate Shushil Kumar Sharma, pleading on behalf of Binod, said they would move a family court on the matter soon.
Last Wednesday, Dhanbad native (not Bhubaneswar as reported earlier) Binod had tweeted to chief minister Raghubar Das, saying he suspected his kidnapped wife and children – missing from Delhi airport since 2010 when they were expected to take a flight to Muscat – were being held hostage in Jamshedpur.
Binod had hired a private detective agency after Delhi police had failed to act on his complaints.
Steel city police, mobilised by the CM’s office, traced Priya and her 10-year-old twins to Munna’s rented residence in Mango last Thursday. The woman claimed she was staying with the man of her own volition, which prompted her husband – who had paid Rs 20 lakh in ransom – to rush back from Oman and lodge an FIR on Sunday.
Mango police arrested Munna for a host of alleged crimes, including extortion and outraging the modesty of a woman. He was produced in Jamshedpur civil courts in Sitaramdera along with Priya and the children.
“I am solely concerned about the well-being of my two children and want their custody. I am even willing to give my wife another chance for the sake of our children,” said Binod, a native of Dhansar in the coal capital, adding that he had complete faith in the judicial system.
Binod and Priya, a resident of Bihar Sharif in Bihar, were married in 2005.
“I never thought we would have to see this day. Munna is a married man and has two children of his own. He has brainwashed my wife to extort money from me. He has converted my wife and our children into Islam. I want justice,” Binod added
Chennai: Woman held for killing paramour’s daughter

Chennai: Police on Monday arrested a 28-year-old woman for murdering the four-year-old daughter of her paramour by dumping the child into a bucket of water at Kundrathur.
The arrested woman, S. Asha, a divorcee, lived with her seven-year-old son at her younger brother’s house. She developed a relationship with advocate Dharmalingam (31) while she was a domestic help at the latter’s house in Kundrathur and was impregnated by him.
Dharmalingam was separated from his wife and child for the past 18 months. About a month ago, both of them got into an agreement wherein the man would spend every weekend with their four-year-old child Goshini.
As per the agreement, Dharmalingam brought Goshini home last Friday. On Sunday morning, he was informed by Asha that she swooned while playing outside and rushed her to a hospital nearby. Doctors examined and declared her brought dead. Meanwhile, the child’s mother, Jayanthi, alleged foul play in the death and filed a police complaint against Dharmalingam.
From the beginning, Asha was the suspect in the case, a police officer said. Investigations revealed that Asha was miffed when Dharmalingam told her during a casual conversation that only his daughter, Goshini, would inherit his property.
The woman was pregnant with Dharmalingam’s child, police said. Enraged over this, on Sunday, when Dharmalingam was away to meet a client, she dumped the child into a bucket of water and killed her. On his return, she staged a drama as if the child swooned.
Kundrathur police registered a case of murder. Asha was produced before a magistrate and remanded to judicial custody. In a strikingly similar incident last week in Villivakkam, a woman killed her neighbour’s child, also a four-year-old girl due to enmity with the child’s parents.
