Rourkela (Sundargarh): In a shocking incident of human trafficking, two girls of this tribal-dominated district have been sold off in Saudi Arabia by a middleman for Rs 25 lakhs while the girls could fortunately manage to flee the foreign land with the help of Indian Embassy there and could be back here.

Both the victims on Tuesday (December 12) have lodged FIRs in the Raghunathpali Police Station under Rourkela Police District here recounting their harrowing experience and naming the miscreant behind the illegal modus operandi.

Registering the written complaints, the district police have formed four special teams to nab the kingpin of this human trafficking.

Rourkela SP Umashankar Dash informed OMMCOM NEWS, “FIRs have been registered. Investigation is on. As the case is under the initial stage of investigation, we can’t reveal much information on it.”

The aggrieved girls in their FIRs have named one Biswajit Mallick as the ruthless broker of the deplorable human trafficking. He had allegedly sold them for Rs 10 lakhs and Rs 15 lakhs each.

In the FIRs it has been alleged that Biswajit lured them with lucrative salaries as nurse in Dubai.

A victim in her FIR has mentioned that she is a married woman and mother of two daughters. She has been staying in Rourkela city for the last four years. As her husband works out of station, Biswajit’s younger sister and the complainant’s landlady convinced her about making a fortune overseas.

Accordingly, they introduced her with Biswajit. On 13.12.2016, he on the pretext of appointment with an authority in a posh hotel in the steel city allegedly raped her in an empty room there. Those objectionable scenes were stealthily videographed and were used by Biswajit to blackmail and issue threats to her. He has even extorted money from her to a tune of over one lakh.

On 3.4.2017, he took her to Chennai and there too sexually assaulted her for 10 days. On 27.4.17, he took her to Delhi and from there sent her to Saudi Arabia instead of Dubai. There she was employed as a sweeper and for washing toilet. When she protested, she was told there that Biswajit had sold her for Rs 15 lakh. Instead of paying salary even after three months, the employer there used to physically assault her and meted out sexual harassment. Somehow she managed to knock the doors of Indian Embassy there and and eventually managed to be back in India.

Same untold miseries have also been narrated in another FIR.
