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.
