Habil Sheikh s/o Ishaq Sheikh
Uncle Palan Sheikh and Ninnuki Sheikh

Polie report, Feb 2007
Ninnuki Sheikh, based in Rampur, Uttar Pradesh, was visiting Ishaq Sheikh at Bhadropara and approached Aloka Haldar with a marriage proposal. He offered Madhumita a good life after marriage with his nephew Habil Sheikh's friend Pappu, who lived in Rampur. The Hindu family was cajoled into believing the groom/party were Hindus.

Aloka and Shambucharan, living in poverty, were ecstatic to find a suitable man, who would support and marry their daughter. Madhumita was married to Pappu at the local Hindu temple. Thereafter the newly married couple left for Rampur by Jammu Tawai express.

After a few months, when Aloka and Shambucharan went to visit their daughter and her husband they were surprised by the conversation they had with the neighbors. Some people offered them money to buy their daughter. This alarmed the Haldars and they returned to Rampur after two months only to find their daughter missing. Repeated efforts to locate their daughter came to nought. The Haldars sold off their meagre holdings and went back to Rampur, only to find their daughter missing. Madhumita made a phone call to her parents and told that she has been sold by her husband at a price of Rs.50,000. Her parents have no phone of their own. So, Madhumita called to a village booth. No trace has been found of Madhumita since, and her parents have spent their life's savings to search for their missing daughter. Their efforts to launch police reports and appeal to the elected members (Muslim) of Local Panchayat brought no results.
