A woman in Bhopal was allegedly sold for Rs 50,000 and later taken to Rajasthan to be sold again, the Madhya Pradesh police said on Tuesday.

MP police has sent its team to Rajasthan to nab the accused and rescue the married woman. The incident was reported to Gautam Nagar police station in Bhopal in the wee hours of Tuesday.

Mukhtar Qureshi, Gautam Nagar police station in charge said they had arrested six accused including two women who hatched a conspiracy to sell the woman and divide the money among themselves. The seventh accused who allegedly bought the woman here was absconding. He was reported to have left for Rajasthan. The woman also is yet to be recovered.

Qureshi said the arrested accused included Aasha Uike, Kajal Ahirwar, Afroz Khan, Pawan Solanki, Nirmal Saxena and Mukesh Maithil, all residents of Bhopal.

Qureshi said complainant Vivek Pawar from the Nariyal Kheda locality in his complaint said his wife Aarti Pawar was missing since January 30 after she had left for some work of Bhopal based marriage bureau where she worked. Their investigation led to Aasha Uike and they were able to finally to crack the case.

“Aasha Uike, Kajal Ahirwar, Afroz Khan, Pawan Solanki, Nirmal Saxena had hatched a conspiracy. Aasha Uike along with Kajal Ahirwar brought Aaarti to her home on January 30. Aasha also called Afroz Khan, Pawan Solanki, Nirmal Saxena and Mukesh Maithil to her home”, he said.

Qureshi said, “The accused first took her to Nariyal Kheda (Bhopal), then to Habibganj area from where they hired a taxi and took her to Narsingarh. There they sold her for Rs 50,000 to one Sunil, who originally hails from Indore. After this, the six accused returned to Bhopal and divided the money among themselves”, he said.

Mukhtar Qureshi said they had reliably learnt that Sunil, who had been involved in criminal activities earlier also, had taken her to Rajasthan. “Mobile phones of both are switched off. We have sent a team to Rajasthan to arrest Sunil and rescue Aarti”, he said.

He said an FIR was registered under sections 370 (human trafficking) and 120 B (criminal conspiracy) of Indian Penal Code (IPC) against all the seven accused .
