On August 29, the 17-year old girl, who hails from Mongolpuri, was allegedly approached by a couple- Rocky and Rani. They had claimed that they ran an NGO that assisted women and offered to get her a security guard job in a multinational company in Jaipur, according to a Times of India report.

As the girl’s father was ill, she needed money for his treatment and hence agreed to go to Jaipur with the couple. On reaching Jaipur, they took her to the Hotel Indraprastha where they sold her to a man named Shekhar, who allegedly raped her.

The girl was confined to the hotel room till August 31 and was raped by many men. It is also being alleged that at one point, she was forced to have sex with eight or nine men, as per TOI report.

On August 31, the girl finally managed to escape from the hotel room through an open window. She got back to Delhi, called her brother and later registered a complaint with the police.

The police have registered a case under sections 376D (gang rape), 372 (selling a minor for immoral purpose), kidnapping, and sections of the POCSO Act and have arrested Rocky, Rani, the hotel manager, two agents, and a customer.

“The farmers will get the sum according to the number of acres of land they give the government on lease for the pilot project,” the government said.

The government claims that the pilot project will prove to be a game-changer not only for Delhi, but for the whole country which is facing huge water crisis in different parts.

It also said the project is first of its kind in the country.

The project envisages creation of small ponds in the floodplains which will catch overflows from the Yamuna during the monsoon.

“Most of the approvals have been received for the pilot project, barring two from the National Green Tribunal (NGT) committees, which are expected very soon,” it said.

Kejriwal also thanked Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat for the quick approvals by the Centre for the project and cooperation Delhi received from Centre for the pilot project. (IANS)
