A 22-year-old woman was allegedly raped by at least 30 men in last five months after she was sold to a brothel at Delhi’s GB road. The victim who hails from Nepal, however, managed to flee and lodged a police complaint. Based on the FIR, the police flung into action and arrested the woman, who allegedly forced the victim into prostitution.
According to Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), the woman approached the victim, promising her a job in Dubai. She was, however, trafficked to India and forced into flesh trade. “The victim was allegedly assaulted, kept hungry for several days and forced to sleep with around 30 customers over the past five months,” DCW media advisor Bhupinder Singh told Hindustan Times.
The victim told DCW officials, a few days ago, a rumour was doing rounds that police may raid the brothel. As a result, thw women were shifted to secure location, taking advantage of the situation, the victim managed to flee.
After escape, she tried to contact some people from east Delhi who she knew. Meanwhile an NGO that works to curb human trafickking was informed. The NGO found the girl and sought the help of DCW to register a police complaint.
The DCW helped the victim lodge a complaint against the woman who forced her into prostitution.
DCW chairperson Swati Maliwal said that this is one of the modus operandi of traffickers who work on G.B. Road.
“They lure women from small cities and neighbouring countries by promising them good jobs in the city and then sell them to the brothels once they land in Delhi.
GB Road, or Garstin Bastion Road, is the biggest red light area in the national Capital. It runs parallel to a railway line near the New Delhi Railway Station from Ajmeri Gate to Lahori Gate, housing close to 93 brothels and 3,500 sex workers.
