Repeated sexual assault in confinement over five months, followed by a month of being stuck in an international bureaucratic limbo, has convinced her to abort the child she carries in her tortured womb.
One of the two Uzbekistani sisters who was rescued by a local and taken to Safdarjung Hospital for immediate medical help last month is drifting farther and farther into the depths of despair at the All India Women’s Conference (AIWC) Hostel in central Delhi.
“Her emotional condition is deteriorating,” said an official.
“The sisters keep asking about their future but get no satisfactory reply either from the police or from officials of their Embassy. We’re worried,” the official added.
The source said the woman was most apprehensive about was whether her policeman husband back home would accept the child she is pregnant with. However, this was only till one of her tormentors, the husband of arrested pimp Dilfuza who allegedly lured her and her sister into the flesh trade after having run into them in Agra, turned up outside the shelter home she is lodged in.
“They were sitting on this pair of swings, which they usually do, that evening when he turned up,” said the official. “He started abusing them and tried to jump over the iron grille to gain access to them but was fortunately stopped.”
The official claimed their embassy wasn’t helping in deporting them while the only thing the police were concerned was keeping them around somehow only till the case was disposed of in court.
But the police said they were doing all they could t keep them comfortable. They said no complaint was made to them.
“These allegations are false. We are leaving no stone unturned to keep them as comfortable as possible till they are lawfully allowed to leave the country,” said a senior police officer.
