The following are the details of this campaign as of December 31, 2002

Dec 31, 2002: Call for Action: Is Bihar a part of Pakistan?
(Media Awakens to Kanchan Mishra Abduction by Sultan Mian)

Sultan Mia, a gangster with political connections, abducted a married woman, Kanchan Mishra, with her four-year-old child in broad daylight in the heart of Patna and forced her to marry him

No leading newspapers of India other than Outlook reported this story for 5 long weeks.

IndiaCause launched an email campaign to Human rights Commission, Media and the political leaders on Dec 8. After our call for action, several Indian agencies reported this issue within a week. Also NCW initiated investigation in this case. Unfortunately the case is unresolved so far. IndiaCause at least was able to bring this issue to people's attention.

There have been 25+ News reports after IndiaCause "Call for Action" on Dec 8

Patna Daily: E-Mail Campaign Against Alleged Abduction (Dec 10)
More Shocking details of the abduction from Amarnath Tewari (Dec 15)
National Commission for Women start probe of Kanchan Marriage(Dec 16)
NCW indicts Bihar Police; demands CBI probe into forced marriage
(Dec 22)

50+ Newspapers have carried this story so far click here


Initial Call By IndiaCause on Dec 08, 2002

Its time for strong action by IndiaCause members.

No leading newspapers of India other than Outlook seem to have carried this report. Our "English" media and the Human Rights commission recently investigated the "Terrorist's Human Rights" at "Ansal Plaza". What are our Human Rights commission and "English" media doing in this case?

Why is everyone quiet when "Sultan Mia, a gangster with political connections, abducted a married woman, Kanchan Mishra, with her four-year-old child in broad daylight in the heart of Patna and forced her to marry him. The woman's only fault: her beauty. The dreaded criminal forcibly pushed her into his car and took her to a mosque in Mainpura locality where their nikah was performed."?

Should not all newspapers and political parties investigate in this matter? Why has there been no outrage in Parliament? Have the police and the administration in Bihar gone to sleep? What is the Central govt doing?

A Shotgun Wedding
It came as a surprise, even by Bihar's lawless standards. Sultan Mia, a gangster with political connections, abducted a married woman, Kanchan Mishra, with her four-year-old child in broad daylight in the heart of Patna and forced her to marry him. The woman's only fault: her beauty. The dreaded criminal forcibly pushed her into his car and took her to a mosque in Mainpura locality where their nikah was performed. RJD's state minister Ejazul Haq and the officer-in-charge of the local police station came to bless the criminal. After the nikah, a lavish reception was organised at Haq's.

Ever since, Kanchan's brother and her husband Pappu Pandey, who works in a restaurant, have been running from pillar to post to free her. But no one wants to help, obviously because Sultan is the protege of the infamous RJD MP from Siwan, Mohammed Shahabuddin. Though the MP has reprimanded Sultan, the gangster's men have threatened to kill Pandey if he tries to rescue his wife.
