The 14-year-old girl who returned after being missing for over 80 days Tuesday recorded her statement in the presence of the chief judicial magistrate.

“She has denied she was kidnapped, and said she had left with the Muslim youth willingly because her father did not like her association with him and often scolded her. She also said he was trying to marry her off to someone else,” South 24 Parganas SP, Sunil Choudhury said.

The SP added that when the girl’s father submitted a prayer to take his daughter back, she refused to go with him, saying she would be beaten up. “She has been kept at a home in Sonarpur,” Choudhury added.

The medical test conduced on the girl ruled out charges of rape levelled against the youth earlier. “We are verifying her statement. Unless there’s a need, we won’t call the youth for questioning,” he said.

TMC’s Sudip Bandopadhyay criticised BJP for “desperately trying to create an issue out of it”. “But they have been exposed.”

State BJP president Rahul Sinha, however, alleged that the police were trying to shield the offenders who, he said, are “leaders of Trinamool Congress”.

          The administration was clueless of the whereabouts of the young girl and was forced into action by the BJP. Immediate results was that the girl was traced. Now stringent judicial action need to be initiated on this youth which should be termed as abduction. Stringent action need to be initiated on the Police officials who did not act after the complaint file of the girls father. Further the comments of the SP and Trinamool MP are not acceptable . The SP's comments are under pressurization of ruling party and the MP's are for garnering minority vote. The saddest and horrifying fact is that these people think only of their lives and glory and not what disaster they are creating for the future generation
