The Crime Branch of Delhi Police has rescued a 15-year-old Delhi girl, who was allegedly kidnapped by two people and sold off to third party for Rs 60,000 for marriage purpose.

Police said she was safely rescued from Rajasthan by the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of Crime Branch. According to Alok Kumar, the Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime Branch, a case of kidnapping was registered on September 16 after the minor girl went missing from her house in Delhi's Haidarpur here. “The case was then transferred to the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of Crime Branch which as part of investigation met the relatives and friends of the victim. The local enquiry revealed that the victim was in regular contact with a man named Neeraj Sonkar and a woman named Muskan. The duo took the minor girl to the house of their third associate --a woman named Sheetal in Agra, Uttar Pradesh,” said the Joint CP.“With Sheetal’s help, they had sold the minor girl to a man named Gopal Lal, a resident of Sikar, Rajasthan for Rs  60,000. Neeraj Sonkar had already got his share of Rs 30,000, while Sheetal had kept the other half,” said the Joint CP.
