DCW chairperson Swati Maliwal claimed the racket had been functional for the last eight months. She also tweeted that the girls were brought to Delhi on the assurance of a job.

Sixteen girls, who were allegedly trafficked from Nepal, were rescued from Delhi’s Munirka area by the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) on Wednesday.  The girls were reportedly on the verge of being further trafficked to the Gulf countries. DCW chairperson Swati Maliwal claimed the racket had been functional for the last eight months.

She also tweeted that the girls were brought to Delhi on the assurance of a job. The passports of the agent involved were also seized. According to Maliwal, the girls were kept in a small room in Munrika and some of them have already sent to Iraq and Kuwait a few days ago.

Maliwal had earlier said prostitution was the “worst form of slavery” and legalising the trade would promote trafficking. She also questioned the experts vouching for legalising the trade and said only poor women would be pushed into it if prostitution was allowed under the law.
