Phagwara: A minor girl's mother, accused of forcing her daughter into flesh trade, was remanded in police custody on Friday even as the Punjab Women's Commission took cognisance of the incident.

The victim's mother Dimple Sethi of Mansa Devi Nagar, who was arrested last night, was produced before the judicial magistrate who remanded her to one-day police custody.

Sethi's friend, Rani, also an accused in the case is absconding.

A panel of Punjab State Women's Commission would soon visit Phagwara to meet the girl and get first hand information about it.

Kiranjot Kaur, a commission member, said the panel will also assess the action taken by police in this regard.

Punjab Social Security, Women and Child Welfare minister Prof Laxami Kanta Chawla met the girl yesterday.
