AIUDF president Badruddin Ajmal mires in yet another controversy for his alleged misuse of power in Manipur. The Dhubri MP is believed to have been pressurizing Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh and police to arrest a newly wed couple.
Imphal police have been seeking the couple to arrest forcing them to seek High Court’s intervetion to get rid of the impending arrest since they claimed to have married at a local court in Guwahati on April 24 this year.
Thus they have been staying at a friend’s house after informing their family members. The couple further told reporters in Imphal on Sunday that thet they performed `Nikkah as per the Muslim law at Jamiatul Ulama at Babupara in Manipur.
The parents came to meet the couple and agreed to entertain it on June 2 and told them to leave for the home.
Then the father called up MP Badruddin Ajmal seeking help who came to Imphal on June 4 along with his entourage and stayed at Hotel Classic. He had talked over the phone with Archiya promising that nothing would happen to the couple and they would be married by the MP himself.
When some local friends met the MP at Hotel Classic the real intension came to light. It was understood that the girl was wanted back and not the boy.
The magistrate has passed an interim relief for Archiya and a copy of the order was sent to the OC of Imphal Police Station Shantikumar.
Some lawyers who had submitted the papers on behalf of Archiya was questioned by the inspector and asked of her whereabouts. The lawyer also told him that the couple was at the Paona Bazar office of Human Rights Law Network.
