Rescued girl to be brought back from Delhi

Assam police are sending a team to New Delhi a day after their New Delhi counterpart rescued a minor girl from Okhla hours after she managed to escape the traffickers. A special police rescue team is leaving for the capital to get the girl in their possession who have been sexually exploited since she was lured to New Delhi a couple of months back. The police team from Guwahati is all set to grill the woman who was arrested for taking the girl away on the pretext of finding her a job and then keeping her captive and forcing her into prostitution. She was arrested from her home in Khanpur area after police registered a case under POCSO Act and other relevant sections of the law on the basis of the victim's complaint. The incident came to light on Sunday night after some locals made a PCR call when they found the girl sitting and crying by railway tracks. A police team brought her to Okhla police station, where she narrated her ordeal. Medical examination of the girl has confirmed rape. The girl somehow managed to escape Guddi's clutches on Saturday and reached the railway track from where police eventually rescued her. The girl has been sent to a children's home for counselling and efforts are being made to locate her family.
