Meerut’s Forced Abduction and #Gang #Rape of a Woman Believed to Be Part of A #SexTrafficking Network

Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, August 04, 2014

A 20-year-old woman, who said she thought she was being offered a teacher’s job, said she was held hostage in a Madrassa, where she was gang raped and forcibly converted to Islam.  In her complaint she also said there were other young women being held hostage there.  There are fears that this incident could lead up to communal tensions in a state that has already seen numerous communal riots where women of both communities are often targeted with rape.  There has also been a demand for a full investigation by the police of whether this case is part of a larger racket of human and sex trafficking.
