New Delhi: The city police have arrested a couple from Mukundpur for allegedly kidnapping a 15-year-old girl from her residence at Bhalaswa Dairy. The couple had sold the minor girl at a prostitution den in Rohini.
Even though police rescued the girl within 12 hours, she was raped twice -- by the accused Sunil Kumar and the owner of the prostitution den.
The police has also arrested Sunil’s wife Aarti and an FIR has been registered in this regard. The owner of the Rohini establishment Rishi Arora is absconding.
Delhi police had received a PCR call at around 8:10 pm on July 25 from a girl claiming that she had been sold off to traffickers by her neighbours. She had alleged that her neighbour Sunil and his wife Aarti had kidnapped her, taken her to Rohini and sold her to the den’s owner.
The girl said that she was raped by Sunil even before he sold her off. The investigations revealed that the owner of the prostitution den Rishi had also raped her and when she reported the facts to Rishi’s wife, she beat her up.
During interrogation Sunil Kumar and Aarti confessed to have committed the offence. Sunil is in police remand for two days and efforts are on to nab the co-accused Rishi and his wife.
Three other cases of minors being raped have also been reported in the capital in the last 48 hours. A three-year-old girl was raped by a mason Om Prakash in the Ranhaula area of west Delhi.
Another girl, a Class IX student from the Khayala area, was repeatedly raped by her neighbour. In the third incident, a 17-year-old girl was raped by her neighbour after he abducted her and took her to a farmhouse in Alipur in outer Delhi. All three accused have been nabbed.
