Delhi Police have arrested four people, including a woman, for kidnapping, sexually assaulting and then selling a 16-year-old girl from outer Delhi’s Sultanpuri to a spa and massage centre in Rohini, police said. Medical examination of the girl has confirmed sexual assault.

The accused have been identified as Ravi (32) a rickshaw puller, Rinky (20) who lives with Ravi, Rohit (22), a caretaker at the spa centre, and Mukesh (25), an assistant at the centre. The centre is run by one Ashok Goyal. Three other accused – Heena, Vicky, Intezar, and Goyal – are absconding and efforts are on to nab them, said the police.

Deputy commissioner of police (Outer), Seju P Kuruvilla, said that the family of the minor reported the kidnapping on June 30.

“During investigation we found that she was last spotted with one Abhishek. Efforts were made to trace him but he could not be found. Police got a breakthrough when the victim, on July 21, contacted her mother and informed her that she is in Rohini. Her mother then went to the house she was at and brought her to Sultanpuri police station where a case of kidnapping was registered,” the DCP said.

She has alleged that Abhishek took her to Haridwar and exploited her sexually, police said.

“They returned to Delhi after four days and lived at the old Delhi railway station where they met Ravi who assured them of a job and shelter. He took them to his residence in Ghaziabad. The next day, Abhishek went with Ravi to find a job but did not return. Ravi allegedly sexually assaulted her in the night, when Rinky had gone out,” Kuruvilla said.

The next morning, Rinky gave the victim some food and she felt drowsy after eating it. “She said that she was then handed over to one Intezar and a woman named Heena who took her to Rohini and handed her over to Goyal who runs a spa and massage centre. The girl also identified Rohit and Mukesh as Goyal’s associates. She said Goyal exploited her sexually and even forced her to have sex with his clients,” the officer said.

Following inputs, the police arrested Abhishek after which he admitted assaulting the girl, police said. He said Ravi and Rinky had told him that she has gone back to her house.

“With Abhishek’s assistance, the police arrested Ravi and Rinky from their residence who confirmed that they had sold the victim with the help of Intezar and Heena. A police team also raided the said massage centre and arrested both his associates,” the DCP said.
