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.

He added that opthalmologists were observing almost increase of 30-35 per cent in the number of patients coming with eye-related problems.

“Due to increasing pollution, there is increase in the incidence of dry eye and ocular allergy. This is causing discomfort even in normal eyes and aggravates the eye complaints in eyes that are prone to dryness and allergies,” said Rajesh Sinha, Professor of Ophthalmology, AIIMS.

“If care is not taken immediately, some of these eyes can have reduced vision due to this problem as well,” he added.
