Many minor girls aged between eight to 15 years, who were rescued from the brothels of Agra , recounted harrowing tales of torture at the hands of pimps and brothel mistresses. The police rescued about a dozen beautiful and young teenagers from a big brothel that used to supply them to rich persons. According to the Agra Superintendent of Police, Gulab Singh, the city has turned into a hub of human trafficking and prostitution.
Recently, half a dozen girls belonging to Agra were recovered from Haryana where they were sold to youths. Sometime ago, Agra girls were also recovered from Mumbai brothels. The rescued girls told the police that their bodies were burnt with cigarette butts by the customers if they complained of physical tiredness or exhaustion. Often they were forced to allow as many as six customers in a day to have intercourse with them.
The girls would also be hung upside down from fans and then whipped by the monstrous men. Sucking was also commonly practiced and if the girls threatened to report the matter to police chilli powder would be inserted in their vagina and rectum. Inserting petrol in rectum is another form of torture. Perverts even forced young girls to drink their urine besides caning them. According to Singh, little girls are often pushed into flesh trade industry.
Several brothel mistresses and pimps have been arrested by the Chatta bazaar police in Agra. Many girls are bought from markets in Nepal. One rescued girl Bala Maiya told the police that she belonged to Sinduji Kodra area of Nepal where she was sold to a brothel owner. Despite all the arrests made by police, it is widely known that the force is not using its capacity to the maximum in helping these tortured girls.
