Delhi HC issues notice on a plea by Human trafficking victim from Meghalaya seeking Rs 19 lakh compensation from Delhi Victim Compensation Scheme, 2018


New Delhi, Sept 30 (ILNS) The Delhi High Court issued notice on a plea filed by a human trafficking victim seeking a compensation of Rs 19 Lakhs under the Delhi Victim Compensation Scheme, 2018.

A Single-Judge Bench of Justice Rekha Palli sought response from the Delhi Government, the South District Legal Service Authority and the Delhi Commission for Women.

According to the plea, the petitioner comes from a very poor and vulnerable family, residing in a remote area of Meghalaya’s Mowkaiaw village. She was lured and trafficked to Delhi on the pretext of the job by her cousin Drabhamon Phawa and others, including Preety, Jenny, Abhinash Das and Barihunshisha Syiem (alias Neha), who were running a trafficking racket in Delhi, where hundreds of girls, including minors, were trafficked and forced into commercial sexual exploitation.

The petitioner averred that she was asked to come to Delhi by Drabhamon on the pretext of providing a cooking job paying Rs 20,000 a month. On reaching Delhi, she was taken to a flat at Malviya Nagar, where she was allegedly raped by Abhinash Das repeatedly and forced into sexual commercial exploitation.

The petition further averred that after 11 days of torture, the petitioner somehow managed to escape. With the help of a friend, she contacted Khasi Student Union, who took her to Malviya Nagar Police Station. Police, with the help of the petitioner, rescued another girl stranded at the said flat.

The petition, seeking compensation on the basis of the Delhi Victim Compensation Scheme, 2018, has been filed by Advocates Alana Golmei, Joicy Milunzou and Olivia A.I. Bang. The matter has been listed for further hearing on December 9./ILNS/SNG/IL
