Reasi Police has arrested two brothers accused of kidnapping and rape after 19 years. Both have been identified as Abdul Rashid and Makhna son Mian Kharian, resident of Barnaili Thillu Tehsil Mahor Reasi. In 2002, Mahor police had registered a case of kidnapping and rape against both the accused. He kidnapped the woman and kept her with him, and raped her every day.

Reasi police said that both the accused fled away as soon as the case was registered in the police station. Both of them changed their disguise and were living from one place to another. This is the reason why it was difficult to arrest them. Meanwhile, after the investigation proved the case, a charge sheet was presented against them in the court in 2003. The court, on 10/09/2004, issued an order of arrest against both the accused.

The Reasi police team led by SSP Reasi Shailendra Singh made an elaborate plan and laid a trap to arrest the absconding accused. The police succeeded in their strategy, and both hardcore and long-running criminals were arrested. Police officials said that evidence had been collected against both the accused, and soon both will be produced before the court.
