Background of that minor girl
Police officials say that the girl hails from Siliguri region. Her father and mother were separated owing to mental instability of her mother. Her grandmother was running a tea stall, wherein Bhandari would come for buying cigarettes and saw her. He promised her a job in Pune’s beauty parlor and brought her there in January 2014. 1st few days went quite smoothly but later on she was forced to prostitution. The accused engaged her in sex with multiple people, drugged her and raped her. She was kept in different locations like Kharadi, Viman Nagar and Sanjay Park. As per the complaint of the survivor, she was taken to Hyderabad, Bhopal and Ahmedabad by Swikriti for this racket.
Torture to the girl!
Later she was brought to Pune again and kept in a flat in Kharadi’s Nyati Empire society, wherein she was forced for having sex with multiple customers. After being beaten, she was forced for undergoing abortion, after she was pregnant. Last month, from this flat, she fled to Delhi with another model (24) who was alleged to have cigarette burns after she didn’t perform sexual favors in exchange of assisting her to become an actress. They came out of the flat and pretended to go to the parlor and fled to that city.
