A 14-year-old girl was rescued by police from a red light area in Nashik, Maharashtra, thanks to a sex worker.

According to police, the girl's "uncle", identified as Vjay Bhika Dive, brought her to the city by promising to buy her new clothes and tried to sell her to a pimp.

But the women who he had approached for selling the girl, instead tipped off the Bhadrakali police, which rushed to the spot, and called the girl's parents, who are residents of nearby Dindori town.

While the girl was handed over to her parents, Dive was handed over Dindori police for further action.
