“The examination of the rescued girl has unearthed a wide prostitution syndicate which was being operated by the accused persons on several WhatsApp groups where they used to circulate her photographs. They used to torture her and she was also forcefully given drugs,” said Urvija Goel, DCP West Delhi.
The rescued girl said that she was kidnapped by two unknown people when she went to a shop to purchase a chips packet. They invited her to have some birthday cake at their home.
“The girl went with them to their residence where after eating the birthday cake, she fainted,” the officer added.
Thereafter, they forcibly took her to Majnu Ka Tila where she was handed over to their associates Sanjay, Anshu Sharma, Sapna Goyal and Kanika Roy. All of them have been arrested.
Police are also probing to learn how many more people are involved in the racket.
