Wrong phone call to cop helps Kamla Market police crack trafficking case.
New Delhi: A minor girl was rescued from G.B. Road’s red light area where she was being allegedly sold for Rs 2.3 lakh.
Two accused persons, identified as Amar (24) and Ranjeet Shah (27), were arrested by the Kamla Market police. It said that for the last few days, area inspector Sunil Kumar was receiving phone calls from different numbers. The callers were under the impression that they had called a dealer at GB Road. On November 19, the SHO received a similar call in which the caller said that he wanted to sell a minor girl. Hearing this, the alert officer introduced himself as a brothel owner at GB Road. The caller introduced himself as Amar. A meeting for finalising the deal was fixed for November 20 near New Delhi Railway Station. The police further said that subsequent to this conversation, a team led by inspector Sunil Kumar was constituted. A public person was also included in the team and two constables were deployed as decoy customers to deal with Amar. On the scheduled date and time, a meeting was held between them outside the railway station. Amar demanded `3.5 lakh for the girl and the deal was finalised for Rs 2.3 lakh. The following day, Amar called the decoy customer, Gulab, and asked him to come to Gurgaon on the afternoon of November 22 to meet the minor girl. Subsequent to this call, a raiding team consisting of above mentioned police personnel was deployed to follow the decoy customer at the designated place. At the scheduled time, Amar came there along with one Ranjeet but they did not bring the minor girl. However, they showed the photograph of the girl to Gulab and promised to hand her over in the evening outside the railway station.
Subsequently, a trap was laid and the police apprehended both of the accused and rescued the minor girl.
