Bahrain Interpol issues red corner notice against Indian woman
A Red Corner notice has been issued by the Bahrain Interpol against an Indian woman on the charges of ‘kidnapping’ her own Bahraini sons. The ‘accused’ Safiya Bano Abdulrasheed is originally from Hyderabad and is wanted by the judicial authorities of Bahrain for her prosecution to serve a sentence. Already a massive international hunt involving 190 member countries of Interpol has been launched to track down Safiya.
It was learnt that she had ‘kidnapped’ her sons Faisal Ahmed Rashed Mujairan (4) and Rashed Ahmed Rashed Mujairan (7) on 27 April. All airports were alerted about her sudden disappearance from Bahrain along with the children. Her photographs and other details including her proficiency in Arabic and Hindi as well as her husband’s name, Mujairan Ahmed Rashid Ahmed, have been posted on Interpol’s official website.
Bahrain probe agencies found that Safiya is one of the key members of a six-member gang who are part of an organised kidnapping racket in Bahrain. Last year all of them were a part of $1.4 million heist in Bahrain. They were also wanted by the Bahrain authorities on the charges of manslaughter, fraud and breach of trust. Bahrain’s interior ministry has a dedicated Interpol section that contacts the Lyon-based agency to issue notices to arrest suspects who fled Bahrain or locate missing persons.
