NEW DELHI: In a horrific incident, a 17-year-old Delhi girl was allegedly gangraped by 11 persons at hotel Indraprastha in the tourist city of Jaipur.

The girl managed to escape from the hotel and come back to Delhi within 24 hours after which she reported the matter to the police. The girl’s father works as a vegetable vendor and is said to be an alcoholic. The girl was in a desperate need of employment to meet the daily needs of the family, said a police official.

The teenager was taken to Jaipur on the pretext of job by a couple who lives in her neighborhood at outer Delhi’s Mongolpuri area. Police suspect this might be an attempt to push the girl into flesh trade.

“A case has been registered under Sections 372 (selling minor for purposes of prostitution, etc) and 376 G (gang rape) of IPC and relevant sections of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act,” said DCP (Outer) Vikramjit Singh.

“We sent a team to Jaipur earlier and they arrested four people involved in the racket. Two of them are flesh trade dealer, one is the manager and the other two are customers,” Singh said.

“Six persons have been arrested so far in connection with the incident. They have been identified as Rocky, Rani, Mahesh, Anil, Arjun and Kamal. More persons are yet to be identified, Singh said, adding that all the accused are in their late 30s. Police said the victim needed a job urgently and she approached the couple Rocky and Rani. Promising the teenager a job in Jaipur, the couple took the girl to the city on August 30 and lodged her in the hotel.

The hotel’s manager, Mukesh, is one of the accused in the case.  Mukesh and his associates allegedly raped her in turns.
