Nepal Police, with the help of some rights organisations in India, rescued a 16-year-old girl from the hands of human traffickers. She was allegedly being sold in a bid to sacrifice her life as per some tantric religious practice.

Anti-Human Trafficking Bureau of Nepal Police said their preliminary investigation into many details wherein the girl was chosen and trafficked, revealed that she was most probably taken to India for sacrifice on the full moon day.

The girl, who came from an underprivileged family of Dhading district, was rescued from Ranhola street No 2 of New Delhi on January 31. She was then flown to Nepal the following day and kept in a house in Kathmandu. Police said the traffickers had searched for a girl with specific features in accordance with the ritual human sacrifices that often happens in India.

According to Senior Superintendent of Police Jeevan Kumar Shrestha, head of the AHTB, traffickers often seek girls meeting certain criteria to be sold to people involved in tantric cults. “The girls need to have fair skin type and slender body without any blemishes or scars on the body. They also mostly search for innocent girls before the onset of their menstruation cycle,” Shrestha said. He further said these were the classic features that dark religious sects searched for in the girls meant for sacrifice in the cult’s religious ceremonies.
