A 14-year-old girl from Jharkhand allegedly working as a domestic help was rescued from an almirah in a businessman’s house in Gurgaon’s Krishna Colony Wednesday evening, said sources.
According to NGO Shakti Vahini’s officials who rescued the girl along with police, the girl is from a tribal family in Gumla district. She was trafficked to Delhi by an uncle, the officials said.
The girl had bruises and a deep cut on her back, the officials added. The NGO members said the girl’s legs were swollen and she had marks near her eyes. She was rushed to Civil Hospital.
“She was employed by the businessman’s family around seven months ago. She was taking care of the family’s twin children. When we first went inside the house at about 5.30 pm, the girl was nowhere to be seen. The police, during the first raid, could not find the girl. Later, the police received a similar complaint on the helpline number. The girl was found in an unconscious state,” said Rishikant of Shakti Vahini.
