Lucknow: Kidnapped at the age of eight from her home in UP’s Ahirwan Purwa area of Chitrakoot, she was administered drugs, injections, capsules to make her grow older. This is not the end of this little girl’s story and here started the worst nightmares of her life.
Soni (name changed) was kept in confinement until she turned 13 and now developed into a young woman with the help of drugs.
Gangraped for the first time and was forced into prostitution in Rajasthan, this flesh trade victim was later raped 50-100 times on a daily basis, News18 reports.
This sexual abuse continued for over six long years until she was rescued by one of her customer’s who visited her in the brothel and helped her reunite with her family.
“I was young when I was abducted and pushed into flesh trade. The culprits used to give me injections, capsules and powder just to make me look older. For almost six years 50 to 100 people used to rape me daily,” victim narrates about her painful memory.
She said the people who had kidnapped her also raped her several times accusing the Rajasthan Police collaborating with the flesh trade mafia.
Unmasking the truth behind the cops in the region she recalls: “When I sought help from police, they took me back to my captors instead of helping me.”
She went on to add that several girls still are being held captive in Ajmer’s Saawar village.
“Lives of hundreds of girls can be saved if Rajasthan government intervenes. The police know everything, but they are saving the culprits,” victim said.
The local police have threatened my family instead of taking action against the culprits she revealed.
When Chitrakoot SP was questioned about the victim’s allegations, Manoj Kumar Jha said, “I have come to know about the case through media reports. A police team has been sent to the house of the victim and culprits will be arrested after investigation. Also, the abduction case of the girl which was registered in 2008 will be opened once again and fresh investigation will be done in the case.”
Responding to victim’s claims, Jha said that she was kidnapped at the age of 12 and was pushed in flesh trade.
The police said Soni’s missing case, filed in 2008, will be reopened after taking a written complaint from her. “We have also spoken to Rajasthan police for the details given by the girl. A tea, will be formed and sent to Rajasthan for further probe,” the police officer said.
