Nadeem Nadu sent to judicial custody in sexual exploitation case

SRINAGAR — A court on Tuesday sent Nadeem Nadu, the main accused in the sexual exploitation of a university student, to judicial remand after his police remand came to an end.

Sources told news agency Kashmir News Observer that Nadu, a self-proclaimed journalist from Anantnag, was produced before a court, which sent him to judicial custody.

On September 30, Nadeem Ahmad Ganie, alias Nadeem Nadu was arrested by the Jammu & Kashmir police on charges of rape, extortion and criminal intimidation on the basis of a complaint of a girl, who was sexually exploited by him.

In her complaint, the victim said that the accused took her objectionable pictures after sedating her and used these to blackmail her into forced sexual intercourse many times.

Apart from Nadu, two more persons- a self-styled journalist and an employee of Public Health Engineering – have also been arrested by the police in the case so far. — (KNO)
