Nine missing girls were earlier rescued from GB road: DCW
New Delhi: A day after the report of eight women and one minor girl missing was revealed from shelter home in Shahdara district, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief along with her members visited Sanskar Ashram on Tuesday. The condition of the home was dismal and DCW Chief described it as suffocating.
Police claimed that they have formed several teams who are raiding different places to trace the missing persons. According to DCW, the girls were not given proper and adequate food and clothing. Further, the girls complained of not being shown to doctors and it was observed that their regular medical check-up was not done. The attitude of the staff was laid back and insensitive which resulted in untold misery for the girls.
"The Commission also learnt that the 9 girls who have gone missing had been earlier rescued from GB road, some by DCW itself," said DCW Press statement. DCW Chief Swati Maliwal stated that the Commission, at great risk, manages to rescue girls from GB road who end up being re-trafficked. She said that the traffickers at GB road were definitely responsible for the abduction of these girls and there were high chances of the girls ending up back in GB road.
DCW Chief appealed to the LG to ensure that GB road is immediately closed down. "Brothels at GB road are hubs of trafficking and each girl there is raped by 30 men daily. The Police Station at 200m remains a mute spectator at best and colludes with the traffickers at worst," DCW said.
