An Uzbek woman has been arrested for allegedly forcing two of her compatriots into having sex with several men after holding them hostage and illegally seizing their passport and other documents.

The incident came to light when the two victims, both sisters and in their Twenties, were found lying in a partly unconscious state near the INA market and passersby rushed them to Safdarjung Hospital where they narrated their experience about the illegal confinement on the pretext of providing good jobs.

In their complaint, the two told the police that in January they had come to India and stayed at a hotel in Paharganj where they came in contact with Dilkhuja, an Uzbek national.

“Assuring them of well-paying jobs, Dilkhuja took them to a guest house in South Delhi where she made her consume soft drinks laced with sedatives. Thereafter, they were gang-raped by several men for the next few months,” said a police officer.

The victims also alleged that their passport and other valid documents were taken by the alleged pimp Dilkhuja who refused to return them. Based on the complaint, the police registered a case at Lajpat Nagar police station.
