Three persons allegedly involved in the trafficking and sexual abuse of an 18-year-old girl at Sarita Vihar here are still absconding.

The victim, who belongs to Gumla in Jharkhand, was brought to the Capital about six months ago through Kunti, the wife of Rajesh who runs a domestic help placement agency along with Rajkumar and Punchum. It is alleged that Rajesh sexually abused the girl and when he discovered that she had become pregnant, he gave her abortion pills a few days ago.

When the girl's condition deteriorated, the accused got her admitted to a clinic and vanished from the scene after paying for her medical expenses.

The police have registered a case and launched a hunt for the three accused. “The girl's condition has improved and she would now be sent to a shelter-home till she is restored to her family,” said an officer.
