The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has sent a notice to the Uttar Pradesh Police seeking explanation for delay in action over the abduction of an eight-year-old girl, who escaped from the clutches of her kidnappers after being tortured for four months in captivity.

Khusboo, a resident of a slum in Sector 10, was kidnapped on April 30. She managed to escape on September 1 and police arrested three persons in the case. The girl had several burn injuries on her body and her tongue was chopped off.

On Monday, a team of NHRC visited the district hospital and met the victim. The commission has sought report from the police.

“The victim who was being treated here has now been shifted to the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS), Delhi,” said Meena Mishra, chief medical superintendent of the district hospital.

Meanwhile, residents of Sector 10 on Tuesday held a protest and blamed the police for delaying in lodging complaint and conducting medical examination on the victim.

Under the banner of Noida Jhuggi Jhopri Sanyukt Punarvas Manch, the residents held a protest at city magistrate’s office and demanded death sentence for the abductors.

“Had police taken action on our earlier complaints Khusboo would have been released earlier. We had informed the police about our suspicion about a woman but they took it lightly,” said Gangeshwar Dutt Sharma, convener, Noida Jhuggi Jhopri Sanyukt Punarvas Manch.
