The Indore Police have released a sketch of a girl in her mid-20s who reportedly has AIDS and who they claim has been seducing men to spread the disease.
Superintendent of Police R.K. Chowdhury said: “It has come to our knowledge that a few young men have been victims of this girl and recently joined therapy.” The sketch, based on descriptions provided by the alleged victims, has been released to warn people against her. No formal complaint has been lodged so far.
The girl reportedly leaves a calling card with the words “Welcome to the world of AIDS” after her session wuth each victim. There are also reports of a 1.34-minute MMS, allegedly of the girl, in circulation among some medical students.
Dr Anand Rai, president of the Resident Doctors Association, Indore, claimed five of his friends had told him they had had unsafe sex with her. “Around 20 students who had sex with her have undergone DNA PCR test so far and two have tested positive,” he told HT.
However, Dr V.P. Pandey, former in-charge of the Anti-Retroviral Therapy (ART) centre, rubbished the story. “Not a single student has approached me so far. I think it’s a cooked up story by a section of doctors in the city.”
A councilor at the ART centre at MY Hospital claimed a spurt in cases of HIV/AIDS has been reported.
One victim, who did not wish to be named, claimed the girl is from Ujjain and comes from a middle class family. She is losing her hair and wears a wig. She is mostly dressed in jeans and seen in posh areas. Her modus operandi: she reportedly hitches a ride with passing vehicles, befriends the driver and then entices him. She does not ask for money.
