The NRI woman from London, Gauri Bhonsle (21) who reportedly went missing on October 15 on her way to Old Delhi Railway station to board a train to Malda, West Bengal, was rescued by the Saharanpur police from Talhari Biurg village on Tuesday. Police said she was rescued from a house, based on a tip-off. "We raided the house and rescued her," Saharanpur SSP Durga Charan Mishra said.
Raju and Palesh have been arrested in connection with the case. Additional SP Anil Kumar Mishra said they confessed to have "bought" the woman from Dehradun six days ago and said Raju has "married" her. Police said the victim was unable to recapitulate the events.
Days after Gauri reportedly went missing, social networking sites were flooded with demands to rescue her. Guari reportedly had come to India from London and stayed in Mumbai, Rajasthan and Delhi before going 'missing'. Many missing posters had come up in Mumbai and parts of London.
Mishra said a case will be lodged against the two men for kidnapping and forcibly detaining the woman. "She gave her name as Gauri Bhonsle and said her grandmother lived in Malda. But she didn't have any proof of identity. We are questioning her to find her address and other details," the SSP said.
Police have informed the British High Commission in Delhi about her rescue. Mishra said the girl told police that she came to India on October 10 as she was annoyed with her parents in London. She first went Mumbai, then Ganganagar in Rajasthan, and then to Delhi. "She decided to visit her grandmother in Malda and, on October 15, hired a taxi to go to the Old Delhi Railway station," he said.
Gauri told police that on the way, the taxi driver told her that the vehicle had developed a snag. While it was being repaired, he offered to take her to his house for food. After eating the food, Gauri claimed that she fell unconscious.
