Man who kidnapped, sold niece into captivity 10 yrs ago arrested

Gurugram: Gurugram Police on Friday arrested a man accused of abducting and selling off his sister's young daughter 10 years ago.
In a written complaint received by the district police, a young woman said that in 2008, when she was 10 years old, she was abducted from her house in Gurugram's Dhanwapur by her uncle Pushpender and taken to Uttar Pradesh's Etah.
From there, the girl said she was sold to one Santosh, who took her to Agra on the pretext of saying that he will take her to home. In Agra, she was purchased by a man Ashok Tiwari.
She told police that at Tiwari's house, where his family also lived, she was mostly kept confined to a locked room.
She spent around seven years, almost entirely in captivity, and faced regular physical and sexual abuse.
In August 2016, she gave birth to a girl.
On December 20, 2017, when Tiwari and his family moved to Noida, the woman managed to escape and contact her elder brother on phone.
Four days later, the woman, along with her daughter, was reunited with her family in Gurugram.
On Monday, the woman lodged a complaint against Tiwari, Pushpender and Santosh, based on which police registered an FIR under sections 323 (causing hurt), 342 (wrongful confinement), 363 (kidnapping), 366 (kidnapping a minor girl), 370A (exploitation of a trafficked person), 506 (criminal intimidation), 34 (common intention) of the IPC at Rajendra Park police station.
After Pushpender's arrest on Friday, cops are now looking for the other accused.
