BHUBANESWAR: The woman from Kyrgyzstan, who was rescued from an alleged flesh trade racket in the state capital here last month, was today handed over to an embassy representative of her country.

The woman, in her early 30s, was rescued from an apartment at Chandrasekharpur area here on March 23 by the Commissionerate police.

A female official of Kyrgyzstan Embassy arrived here this morning and met officials of the Chandrasekharpur police station before visiting the rescued woman at Ruchika Helpline where she was sheltered.

The official spoke to members of Child Welfare Committee and enquired about the rescued woman's health before taking her to Delhi.

The Commissionerate Police had contacted the Kyrgyzstan Embassy after the woman's rescue. "We handed the rescued woman over to the embassy official in order to prevent her from again falling in a sex racket." Benudhar Senapati, an official of the shelter home said.

Even though her tourist visa is valid till April 23, she may be deported tomorrow, a top Odisha police official said.

The embassy official refused to comments on the issue.

Before leaving the shelter home, the rescued woman in a 'letter' said, "First of all I want to apologise for my disastrous behaviour. Thank you so much for your love, care. I will remember this time, this place always. Thank you."

The woman had visited Goa and Bengaluru in February before she was was brought here by an agent from Kolkata. She was rescued during a raid on March 23 in which one person identified as Somesh Panda was arrested.

Panda was an associate of suspected sex racket kingpin Sunil Meher, who managed to escape during the raid. The racket used to lure rich people with foreigner women.
