Ahmedabad-Bhuj protest rally to be held if Majid, disappeared on July 19, isn't found: MCC

The Minority Coordination Committee (MCC), Gujarat, has warned that it would begin a wide-scale protest over the sudden disappearance of Majid Theba, 27, from his house in Bhuj on July 19 following cops entering his house, beating him up and his pregnant wife. Majid’s wife, Aashiyana Theba, who filed a FIR 26 years ago on disappearance of her husband, hasn’t heard from the police about the whereabouts of her husband.
“If Majid is not found, we will take out a rally from Ahmedabad to Bhuj”, said the Gujarat-based minority rights body, which has sought immediate intervention of the Gujarat DGP, the home minister and the chief secretary. The reason for beating up Majid and his sudden disappearance are not known.
MCC said, her family was having dinner when three policemen, including a head constable, came in asking for Majid. They started beating him. When Aashiyana tried to stop them, they thrashed her. She had to be admitted to GK General Hospital in Bhuj because of her pregnancy. On her return, she found that her husband had disappeared, forcing her to file the FIR.
