Organised nexus to bring women from Nepal

New Delhi: The whole nexus of trafficking women to India from Nepal came into limelight as two of them fled from traffickers clutches in Varanasi. They went back to Nepal and informed the police.

The investigators claimed that the gang had taken money from the Nepalese residents on the pretext of giving them the job. But in Uttar Pradesh, their passports were snatched.

UP Police investigators who are probing the case told Millennium Post that on July 22, on Nepal Police information, they raided the house in Varanasi.

"After the raid, we came to know that women were moved from the house to Delhi. We recovered few things which confirmed about their stay in the house," said police officer.

The house owner was questioned and the interrogation revealed few phone numbers which helped cops in their investigation.

Further probe revealed that the members of the alleged human trafficking gang had taken Rs 1-2 lakh from the women on the pretext of providing jobs. Instead, the women were forced into prostitution to earn money.

"The whole system was organised. The girls were brought in few numbers through bus till Nepal border and then they were taken to Varanasi by train," said investigator adding that the women were locked and had no chance to escape as they were guarded by the gang members.

Every ten days these girls were moved to Delhi. To dodge police the only one or two girls were sent to the city through trains or bus. "The nexus in the Gulf countries is being probed," added the official.
