Man marries daughter in front of wife
A 36-year-old man from Jalpaiguri in India married his teenage daughter and made her pregnant, justifying his act by claiming that he had divine sanction for his incestuous lust. What's even more apalling is that his wife was the prime witness in the nikah of her daughter to her husband. Afazuddin Ali's wedding happened quietly and understandably without fanfare, so none in Kasiajhora village of Jalpaiguri district knew. But now, six months later, as the girl showed signs of pregnancy, eyebrows were raised, tongues started wagging and word finally got out. Outrage and anger swept across the village and there was even talk of attacking the family. Sensing that things could quickly get out of control, officers from the Banerhat police station rushed in and arrested Ali, his wife Sakina and their 15-year-old daughter. The three were taken to a Magistrate court on Monday but the hapless magistrate had to release them because he had no criminal jurisdiction to charge them as the Police could not bring out a complaint of statutory rape against Ali
