Four Bangalore girls, including two minors, were rescued on Sunday from the clutches of flesh traders after a joint team of Delhi and Karnataka police conducted a raid in the red light area of G B Road. Three pimps were arrested.

The Karnataka Police received a tip-off that a 17-year-old girl was lured by a human trafficker and being taken to Delhi for flesh trade by the Sampark Kranti Express.

Working on the input and with the help of technical surveillance, a police team nabbed Venkatesh (26), on the train in Karnataka and rescued the girl.

During interrogation, Venkatesh told police that he had lured the minor on the pretext of marrying her in Delhi. “He, however, had planned to sell the minor at G B Road,” said police officer Pramod Joshi.

The Karnataka police then came to the national capital and approached local cops. A joint team of Karnataka and Delhi police laid a trap and arrested Allauddin, a 27-year-old resident of Shakarpur in east Delhi, at Shastri Park in north east Delhi.
“Venkatesh had planned to sell the minor to Allauddin,” said Joshi, who was also investigating into the matter.

During interrogation, the duo told police that they had further planned to sell the minor to a 45-year-old woman pimp – Jyoti, in charge of Kotha number 68 of G B Road. Police then arrested Jyoti, who trafficked girls especially from South India.

Working on another missing girl case, the joint team raided Kotha number 68. During the raid, a 15-year-old girl, who was missing from Bangalore since September 2011, was rescued.  “Seeing the police, two more girls, who were forced into flesh trade a few years ago, approached for help. They too were rescued along with the minor,” said Joshi.

During interrogation, the minor told police that Venkatesh had brought her to Delhi on the pretext of providing a good job and had sold her at G B Road, where she was forced into the flesh trade after physical torture. Another of the rescued girls told the police that she was brought to Delhi by one of her acquaintances on the pretext of a holiday trip.
