After 13 years of repeated assault, Majoni (name changed) a resident of Udalguri district of Assam succeeded in escaping from the clutches of traffickers who kept her in confinement in Rohtak district of Haryana. She flew from the house of her captor and reached Delhi and with a help of a well-wisher, approached Rajouri Garden Police for help , NGO Shakti Vahini was informed by the Joint Commissioner of Police, North East Cell, Delhi Police, Mr. Robin Hibu to facilitate the victim’s care and protection. The girl was interviewed by the representatives of Shakti Vahini, Delhi Commission for women, North East cell of Delhi Police and the woman police officer.

Majoni was brought to Delhi from her native place when she was 12 years old by one Purnita on the pretext of providing her good job and handed her over to one Munna Chaudhary, a Placement Agent who after raping and physically assaulting her for few years, sold her off to Dinesh for Rs 50000. Munna Choudhury is already booked under several cases of child trafficking earler by the Delhi Police Crime Branch and Assam Police as well.

Majoni in her letter to the Station House Officer, Rajouri Garden narrated her ordeal that 13 years ago one Purnita lured her and brought her to Delhi with a promise for better life. She then introduced her to a guy named Munna Chowdhary, who allegedly runs the Rajdhani Placement Agency and asked her to stay with him till he found a suitable job for her. About 4-5 days after she started staying at his place, one night Munna came all drunk and in the absence of his wife raped her and threatened to kill her if she revealed the matter to anyone. The girl said that Munna used to do galat kam for a certain period of time.

The girl said, “One day Munna brought two strangers and showed the girl. They kept on talking for some time which I did not understand and later forced me to go with them. When she asked for her pending wages and expressed her desire to go back to her home, Munna told her to go with them, work there for some time and thereafter she can go back to her home.

Later, Majoni found that she was being sold to one Dinesh a native of village Baraan, Rohtak, Haryana for Rs. 50,000. Dinesh used to keep her in confinement and also used to rape her often. She bored the torture for 9 years and during that period she also mothered two children. However, one night she managed to escape from the house of Dinesh and reach Delhi and with the acquaintance of a known well-wisher she approached the Police Station and lodged an FIR against Munna Chaudhary and Dinesh. Meantime, Shakti Vahini had contacted the SP, CID, Assam and Mr. Dhananjay Ghanawat, Addl. Superintendent of Police, Udalguri and communicated the matter to him. As per the information a Assam Police team will be reaching Delhi soon for the speedy restoration of the girl with her family.
