Bengaluru: While investigating the case of a missing person — a 16-year-old girl from Munnekolalu, Marathahalli — city police stumbled on a prostitution racket that was centred in New Delhi and involved a peon at a sub-registrar’s office in Bengaluru. While the kingpin and an associate eluded a team of Marathahalli police in Delhi, cops nabbed four persons including the peon. A charge sheet was filed in March and a hunt is on for the others. Police found that the teenaged girl was allegedly lured by the peon, identified by sleuths as K Shivashankar alias Raju, 30, a resident of Bangarpet, Kolar district, on the pretext of landing her a job in Delhi. Shivashankar sold the girl to Kajal, the woman who runs the brothel in Delhi and the main accused in the case, for Rs 70,000 and Kajal forced the 16-year-old into prostitution.

Trafficking victims script success story with bakery in Chhattisgarh town

FOR NINE years, she was one of the many girls who went missing. Born to Adivasi parents in a village in tribal-dominated Jashpur district, where trafficking has always been a problem, she left home at the age of 13. There was no money at home, and a local middlemen had promised a steady income to the girl and her parents. They had thought their daughter would be paid, and would visit them often. But she found herself working in homes where she was constantly abused, paid very little, with no contact with the outside world. Until one day, in the beginning of 2017, she found a way to escape. A year-and-a-half later, she stands beaming almost as brightly as her red uniform, a proud member of a self-help group of victims of human trafficking who now run their own self-sustaining bakery in a small town in Jashpur district. “I wasn’t allowed to go out of the house where I found myself working in Dehradun. There was lots of abuse, and no way to get in touch with my family. The only entertainment was that I was allowed to watch television sometimes. One day I watched a show called ‘Savdhaan India’, where someone said that if you dial the number 100, the police come. I took someone’s phone, and dialled the number, and told them about how I was mistreated and abused. I was rescued. And now I’m here,” said the 22-year-old.
