After former Union Minister CM Ibrahim was accused by his brother Khader of forcefully aborting his daughter’s foetus, Khader filed a complaint with the Cubbon Park Police on Wednesday, the Deccan Herald reported.

CM Ibrahim’s daughter is married to Khader’s son Faisal. Khader also accused Ibrahim’s son Fayiz of assaulting Faisal on December 22, the report added.

Khader alleged that Ibrahim’s wife and the former Union Minister were in Dubai when the assault happened. He said that Fayiz called his son and daughter-in-law, Ifa. When they went to Ibrahim’s house, Fayiz locked up Ifa and beat up Faisal, Khader told DH.

Police said that the assault happened several days ago and the case is still being investigated.

The Karnataka State Commission for Women chairperson Nagalakshmi Bai said she has sought details from the police on Ifa’s abortion.

Nagalakshmi told reporters on Wednesday that she has written to the DCP, seeking information about the case registered against Ifa’s husband Faisal.

According to the doctors who are treating Ifa, she was brought to the hospital in a critical condition and the miscarriage had already happened and that they opted to save her life, the report adds.

Ifa had told the police that she would not give an oral statement but would give a written one on Thursday, the DH report states.
His brother CM Khader filed a complaint with the Cubbon Park police in Bengaluru, alleging that his daughter-in-law (who is Ibrahim’s daughter) was fed with juice laced with some medicine to facilitate a miscarriage.

22-year old Ifa got married to Khader's son Faizal in August last year and was four-and-a-half months pregnant. In a four-page complaint, Khader goes on to accuse Ibrahim and his family of having deliberately aborted the foetus, as they did not approve of Ifa’s marriage to his son. 

According to Khader’s complaint, his daughter-in-law Ifa Afsa had called his son CM Faizal on Monday afternoon, and told him that her elder siblings Faiz and Shabina had forcibly administered a sour-smelling Mausambi juice to her against her wishes, which brought on stomach pain and bleeding.

Khader also alleges that on 22 December last year, when Faizal went to Ibrahim's house, Faizal was tied and beaten up with a hockey stick, tortured and warned against returning to meet Ifa. He has also named two gynaecologists for forcibly terminating Ifa's pregnancy without her husband’s consent.  

A press statement released by Vikram Hospital on Tuesday stated that a young female who was 15 weeks pregnant was brought to the hospital on January 2 by her family with “profuse vaginal bleeding.”

She was diagnosed with “incomplete abortion of unknown cause and underwent emergency evacuation procedure”.
