Hyderabad: Qazis under scanner, police opens suspect sheets

Hyderabad: South Zone of Hyderabad City Police has opened suspect sheets against the 5 Qazis who are allegedly involved in the marriages of minor Muslim girls with foreigners.

Sources indicated that suspect sheets have been opened against Ali Abdullah Rifayi, Fareed Ahmed Khan (Chief Qazi, Mumbai), Munawar Ali (Dy. Qazi, Mumbai), Habeeb Ali and Habeeb Shareef. These sheets have been opened in Falknuma and Chandrayangutta Police stations.

Mohammed Tajuddin Ahmed, ACP of Falknuma Division told that due to the increase in child marriages of Muslim girls, police decided to open suspect sheets. The Qazis will be under strict surveillance so that they could refrain from arranging such marriages with Arab Sheikhs.

A police team went along with Chief Qazi to Mumbai to seize fake documents including affidavits prepared by notaries and marriage certificates so that these could be used as evidence in these cases.
