According to this Times of India article, an unidentified thirteen-year-old girl has showed up back in her old district in Jashpur in the state of Chhattisgarh in eastern India, seven years after she was abducted by human traffickers at the age of five.
The little girl’s family had assumed she was dead, and had a ceremony in her memory every year on the anniversary of her disappearance. She claims she was forced to work as a domestic servant in private homes in New Delhi and endured every manner of abuse. I don’t doubt it. Human trafficking is a serious problem in India.
I’m so glad she’s back with her family. I hope they can catch the people who did this to her.
