A taxi driver working with a leading multi-national company allegedly picked up a 15-year-old from Loni near Ghaziabad in UP on Sunday, said the police. He took her to a deserted spot and allegedly raped her. Later he brought her to Delhi and with the help of an accomplice tried to 'sell' her the police said.
The two men who are in custody now have been identified as Pervez and Shoaib, both residents of Muzaffarnagar.
The men were spotted with the teenager at GB Road, a red light area in Delhi yesterday. They were apparently looking for a trafficker to 'sell' the girl said the police. A constable, who was on duty in plainclothes, in the area tracked them after he noticed their suspicious movement. He laid a trap posing as a trafficker. The men approached him and demanded Rs 2 lakh for the girl.
The taxi in which Pervez brought the girl to Delhi has been seized and the two have been booked under stringent child sexual abuse and trafficking laws.
The teenager has been sent to a rehabilitation home for counselling say police sources.
