1. Kidnapped, Not Arrested
At around 9:00 pm on 20 February 1998, Aamir was picked up by a group of men near his home in old Delhi. They did not identify themselves as policemen and kept Aamir in custody illegally for seven days. He still calls his abduction a kidnapping, not an arrest.
He was severely tortured during that time. His abductors made him sign blank papers. Later, he found out he had been framed for a series of low-intensity bomb blasts that took place in Delhi and adjoining areas between 1996 and 1997.
He did not know why he had been picked up till he was finally presented in court.
