Indian migrant Ram Lubhaya deported for ‘abducting’ girl from a beach resort near Ragusa, Italy

In August, Justice minister Andrea Orlando has sent inspectors to the Ragusa city prosecutor’s office after Ram Lubhaya was caught trying to abduct a 5-year-old girl

Rome, September 7, 2016: Italy has deported a 43-year-old Indian migrant Ram Lubhaya who last month in August has tried to abduct a young girl from a beach resort near Ragusa in Italy.

Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said Lubhaya had been put on a plane from Rome to New Delhi. The incident took place on August 16. Last month, he was released because attempted kidnapping is a non-carcerable offence under Italian law, mentioned PTI reports.

In August, Justice minister Andrea Orlando has sent inspectors to the Ragusa city prosecutor’s office after Ram Lubhaya was caught trying to abduct a 5-year-old girl.

The girl’s parents had chased and fought with Lubhaya to get their child out of this clutch. Within an hour, Lubhaya was arrested based on eyewitness descriptions, reported ANSA news agency.

Prosecutor Giulia Bisello ordered the man – who has a criminal record, no residency permit, and currently makes a living by creating henna tattoos on the beach where he also sometimes spends the night – released without questioning.

Her decision sparked an outcry on social media and a wave of calls from concerned beachgoers to police emergency services, which prompted Bisello to track the suspect and get him arrested again.

However, after questioning him for several hours, the prosecutors ordered his release again, based on the legal code.

“This law makes me vomit,” said the child’s mother. “We were told the suspect did not conclude the crime — we were supposed to lose sight of him in order to say he kidnapped our little girl,” mentioned the PTI report.

The suspect, she said, only stopped “because we tackled him. He was holding her very tight, with her face almost in his armpit. We were hoping this person would be deported from Italy at least”.

While prosecutors’ decisions can’t be challenged, Orlando’s inspectors are tasked with assessing whether there were any “abnormalities or violations of the law that could be subject to disciplinary action”, the ministry said.
