Man booked for abducting wife


The Margao police on Thursday registered an offence against Dhaval Shaikh, a resident of Moti Dongor, Margao, under charges of abducting his wife and confining her to an undisclosed location.
Police sources told TOI that the daughter of the accused, Firoza, in her complaint to the police, said that Shaikh, along with his wife, had left Goa to visit their native place at Gadag, Karnataka, on Saturday. However, on Monday, Shaikh returned home alone and failed to provide any information about the whereabouts of his wife.
Inquiries by Shaikh's children with their relatives in Gadag also proved futile, police said.
Acting on Firoza's complaint, Margao police booked an offence against Shaikh under Section 365 of the Indian Penal Code (kidnapping or abducting with intent secretly and wrongfully to confine person) and further investigations are in progress. [TOI]
