Two teenagers were detained by a combined Jammu and Kashmir and Nagpur police squad on Saturday for allegedly kidnapping a 15-year-old girl from the Union Territory and taking her to Maharashtra, according to an official.
The minor, a Class 10 student, was apparently in a relationship with one of the accused, Mohd Muddasir Hussain (19), said the Sitabuldi police of Nagpur city.
Muddasir allegedly promised to marry the girl and get her a job in Hyderabad. Muddasir, his cousin Mohd Yasir Hussain Shaheen (19) and the girl left J&K and first headed to Delhi. They arrived in Nagpur on a train on Saturday, said the official.
A team of J&K police and their Nagpur counterparts arrested the young men at the railway station, he said. While Muddasir hails from Kishtwar district in J&K, Yasir is a resident of Doda district there.
The girl has been sent to a government hostel in Nagpur, while the J&K police are carrying out further investigations in the matter, he added.
