Back home after 10 years of torment, the victim of the human trafficking racket said she was coping with the situation, but worried for her children. “I want to educate them in Delhi and put them up in a hostel. I need support from the government,” she said Thursday. She had two children with a truck driver between 2009 and 2011. He died in 2011. Her children are with one of his relatives.

She said though she was happy some of the people who destroyed her life had been arrested, more accused were at large. Her mother said both of them were in trauma.

“She is in shock and keeps to herself… doesn’t go out. We are thankful to god and I have convinced my daughter to go to shrines in Delhi,” said the 50-year-old woman. She said she has written to the Delhi government to help in her daughter’s rehabilitation. “Till now, the government has not come forward for counselling. She needs it the most now. I want her to be independent.”

She said she had given up on the hope of seeing her daughter and accepted five years ago she might be dead. The family had even followed all rituals in the memory of their “dead daughter”. She said she was taken aback when she saw her daughter and was then overjoyed, but she couldn’t stop grieving after she came to know of her ordeal.

    This is a genuine demand which can be considered by the Delhi Government which is also the duty of the Govt. to feed her and daughters for the ordeal faced by her forgetting her sufferings. Whereas the human animals are still alive in the jails shows that we are protecting the rapists but not the victims and her family members which is not a good governance !!!
