Twenty one-year-old Mausami Das from Assam’s Karimganj district went missing on March 12. Following a search and investigation Karimganj police traced her location to Bangladesh.
Karimganj’s Superintendent of Police (SP) Gaurav Upadhyay confirmed the information.
While addressing reporters, Gaurav Upadhyay said: “After receiving the missing report from Mausami Das’s family, we scoured rigorously and issued a search notice throughout Assam and neighbouring states.”
According to police, Mausami Das is a local from Dharakuna village under Karimganj district and she was engaged in a relationship with Jafar Badshah of Dhaka.
The duo crossed the Indian territory via the international border along Tripura without any valid passports, Upadhyay added.
He further said, Jafar Badshah came to Karimganj Expo Mela held in February this year with valid visa to sell Bangladeshi products, adding: “This is where they met and became enamoured with each other.
“Karimganj police scanned the call lists of Mausami and Badshah over the past one month and discovered that they had spoken to each other 919 times.”
“The Indian Embassy of Bangladesh has taken up the matter seriously and they informed the Bangladesh police to rescue the girl. However, Mausami has refused to return to India,” added Upadhyay.
“Mausami has also re-named herself as Fatima following her marriage with Badshah,” he further said.
