Bangladeshi woman escapes pimp’s clutches



A young Bangladeshi woman, who was trafficked to the Capital and sold off to a pimp for Rs.40,000 for commercial sexual abuse, managed to escape from his clutches at Rohtak in Haryana on Friday.

The 21-year-old woman, who had strained relations with her husband, was brought to West Bengal about three months ago by one Manas Das and his wife, who is also a Bangladeshi national. The couple, who had promised to get her placed as a domestic help, kept her at their residence in Asansol for two months.

Claiming that they had arranged a job for her, the suspects recently took her to Jaipur from where they came to the Capital and stayed a Paharganj hotel. “A pimp from Haryana met the couple and paid Rs.40,000 for the woman. She was then taken to Rohtak,” said Rishi Kant of non-government organisation Shakti Vahini.

When the trafficker attempted to force her into prostitution, she offered resistance. He then allegedly beat her up. A couple of days ago, he sent her to a client along with another girl who on getting an opportunity dialled 100 seeking police assistance.

While no policemen turned up, the hotel staffers were apparently tipped off that the police would soon conduct a raid. The victim purportedly revealed that the hotel employees raised an alarm, asking people to vacate the place immediately. They then asked her and the other girl to wait for a vehicle which would take them back to the pimp.

“In the melee, she along with the other girl managed to escape and reached Delhi on Saturday morning. They contacted the West Bengal Police at whose instance the two met us. We took the Bangladeshi woman to the Delhi Police Crime Branch, which has directed us to meet the Bangladesh High Commission officials to facilitate her travel back home,” said Mr. Kant.

    I have read regarding Vandana and her Maidservant in Vasant Kunj. Vandana has been arrested by Police because she has badly beaten her maidservant by Hummer and Broom and by other things. She has been appeared in Patiala House Court on 01/10/2013 from where Court has given her to Police for one day remand. I would like to request you all please make naked that women Vandana and put some petrol and fire her. There is no respect of women because of like that woman. She has not any right to survive because she torture a minor girl. Also take action against placement agency how they sold a girl to Vandana and all should get death penalty for this.
