Chennai: Police have rescued a mi­n­or girl from a prostitution racket with the arrest of her mother and a godman to whom she had sent the girl to secure divine help for improving her studies after the 14-year-old failed in her seventh class in a Ch­ennai school. The mother had aided in the ‘sidd­h­ar’ re­pe­a­tedly ra­ping the girl.
The girl’s trauma began about six months ago wh­en her mother, who worked as a maid servant at Per­a­m­­bur, took her to a god man named Aravazhi Sid­d­har near her place and pl­eaded for help to improve her st­u­dies. The woman al­so all­e­gedly aided in the god man raping the poor girl.
Subsequently, a watch-me­chanic called Kumar of Walltax Road befriended the girl and sold her to a flesh trader Selvam, who forced her into prostitution with the help of two other women near the Ce­ntral railway station. Ano­ther group of six men took the girl to Marina be­a­ch and raped her, police said.
The girl escaped from Selvam and fled to Tiru­pa­ti, where the child helpline rescued her and alerted the TN police. Upon direction from the DGP, the crime branch CID police investi­ga­ted the girl’s pathetic st­ory and arrested the god man and her mother on Sa­turday.
The two were produced before fourth metropolitan magistrate R. Shankar at Saidapet and re­manded to custody. “We are searching for the eight others involved in the he­in­o­us crimes against the    gi­rl”, a police officer said.
