Five Nepali girls, including two minors, were rescued from the captivity of two Nepali nationals in south Delhi, police said on Saturday.

The accused have been identified as Ghulam Gilani Khan, and Abhikeshar, and were arrested from the New Friends Colony area.

According to police, the men brought the girls to the capital on May 15, via Patna, on promise of employment. However, they were confined to a house in Julaina in south Delhi since arrival.

"The girls were supposed to be either employed as domestic helps or to be sold abroad," a senior police officer said.
