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 air quality deteriorated to ‘very poor’ in the national capital Delhi and areas around it due to low wind speed and marginal effect of stubble burning in neighbouring states.

Several areas across Delhi also saw ‘severe-plus’ and ‘severe’ air quality due to high level of particle pollution, which remained over 10 times the safe limit.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) was 337 or very-poor against 273 or poor or Thursday. The AQI at Anand Vihar was 407 and of Mundaka was 432, both under ‘severe’ category.

PM2.5, or particles with diameter less than 2.5mm, is still the dominant pollutant. Despite dry and cool north-westerly winds, the air quality dropped to the average PM2.5 over 37 areas of Delhi recording 191 microgrammes per cubic meters, against 134 units on Thursday and 240 units on Wednesday.

“Air Quality Index will remain in very poor category on Saturday. A slight improvement is predicted later,” said a forecast by System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research.

According to weather analysts, wind speed at present is slow allowing the pollutant to accumulate.

“Stubble fire will have a marginal impact,” SAFAR said.
