Rescued women wish to return back to brothel over earnings

According to the senior officer who is privy to the probe, the eight women and the minor were rescued last year in November, along with four other women, by the Crime Branch from a brothel on GB Road.

After being rescued, they underwent counseling but had expressed a desire to stay on GB Road since they were earning a living there, he said.

In the end, rescued women even fled from shelter home

However, the Child Welfare Committee sent the women to a shelter home in Dwarka, from where four of the rescued women had fled earlier this year, sources said. The remaining women and the minor were then shifted to the shelter home in Shahdara, they added.
