Crime Patrol: Techie tries to stop child marriage in Noida, thrashed (Episode 358, 359 on 10th, 11th May 2014)



The Inside Story

Noida, Uttar Pradesh

Software Engineer Assaulted for Preventing Child Marriage

A 29-year-old software engineer from Noida, Linkan Subuddhi, was brutally attacked when she intervened to stop a forced marriage between a 15-year-old girl and a man ten years her senior. The victim, who is also a volunteer with the NGO Aid India, is currently hospitalized in the ICU with severe injuries. The assailant, along with the minor's mother, has been arrested by the police.

Linkan, a software developer with a US-based IT company, received a distress call for help from Sabha (name changed), the girl who was being coerced into marriage. Linkan had been teaching Sabha for the past year and had previously assisted her in a similar situation. When she arrived at Sabha's house on Thursday morning, the prospective groom, identified as Siraj, and Sabha's mother became violent and attacked her with a knife and bricks, causing serious injuries.

Linkan suffered severe head injuries, internal hemorrhaging, and multiple injuries all over her body. She was rescued by residents of the colony and rushed to Kailash Hospital. The accused fled the scene, but both have since been apprehended by the police. Doctors have stated that Linkan's condition is stable but critical, and she will be closely monitored for the next 72 hours. The incident sheds light on the ongoing issue of child marriage in the region, as Sabha's two older sisters were also married off at a young age.
