Rajasthan: Armed men kidnap women, children in Jhalawar, cops rescue
Jhalawar: Nearly three dozen women and children belonging to Kanjar community here were abducted in Rajasthan, but cops arrived in time to rescue them.
Six people were arrested in this regard. Police have also seized a country made pistol and two cartridges and other sharp-edged weapons from the accused.
Police said the people from Kalsiya village in MP were angry over the frequent incidents of theft and thus attacked the Jhalawar village. While the men managed to flee, the accused kidnapped the women and children.
The cops have also booked 94 unnamed accused under SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, Arms Act, kidnapping and other relevant sections of IPC.
