New Delhi: Two women, trafficked to the
capital from Bangalore, were tonight rescued from a redlight
area in central Delhi after a visitor to a brothel informed
police about their plight.

On an information received by a visitor, police raided a
brothel in G B Road and rescued the women, in their early
twenties.

The victims had told the visitor that they were forced
into prostitution.

One of the two women, who was working in a call centre in
Bangalore, said she met Babu Lal, who allegedly lured her and
brought her to Delhi on the pretext of getting a job in a
prominent call centre two months ago. Lal allegedly sold her
to the brothel and went back.

The other woman (25) is a mother of two children and was
allegedly sold by the same person on the pretext of getting a
job here. She did not inform her husband and other family
members.

Both the women became friends as they hailed from the
same locality and one of them told their ordeals to the
visitor, a senior police officer said.

The two women told the police that Lal had promised them
good jobs but forced them into prostitution.

A case of kidnapping, rape, wrongful confinement and
immoral trafficking has been registered against the brothel
owner Sharda, who was arrested.

A man hunt is on to nab Lal. The women were taken to Nari
Niketan.
