Bundi (Raj): After allegedly being raped for two-and-a-half year by their uncle, two minor girls were pushed into flesh trade in Dhabi area of the district.

Thirteen persons, including aunt and uncle of the girls, were booked yesterday for the crime.

The two sisters, aged between 16 and 17 years, were living with their uncle and aunt at Dhaneshawar village after their parents died three years ago, Dhabi Police Station SHO Mahendra Maroo said.

Taking advantage of their situation, their uncle and others allegedly raped the girls repeatedly for over two years, said the SHO.

The victims were afraid to disclose the matter to anyone. It was only when their brother visited them recently they told him about the incident.

A case has been filed at the Dhabi police station against 13 people, including victim`s uncle Shantilal Kalal and aunt Hemlata.

Ten accused, including the couple, have also been arrested last evening, the SHO said, adding the three accused are absconding and efforts are on to nab them.
