Delhi Police nabbed an international suspect in a human trafficking case after jumping in the water of Yamuna river in the cold weather of the city.
Lopsang Lama, the suspect was not only carrying a Rs 1 lakh bounty on him but was also involved in a case in which the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) had rescued 16 Nepalese girls from a flat in Munirka.
Speaking to TOI, DCP (special cell) Sanjeev Kumar Yadav said, “Lama (33) was the kingpin of the syndicate that illegally sent Nepalese girls to Gulf countries. After the raid by DCW, he had fled to Nepal.”
A team was formed soon after lama went underground to bring him down. ACP Sanjay Dutt got a tip that Lama would come to meet his contacts at Wazirabad. A team of inspectors Atul Tyagi and Dalip Kumar found out that he was Kashmere Gate and spotted him around 7:20 coming out of the monastery.
Lama ran towards the Kudsia Ghat and jumped off at the Yamuna to escape while Tyagi followed and finally got him.
During the investigation, he revealed that he ran the racket with help of his brother-in-law based in Kuwait with other associates. He also mentioned that the 16 girls he brought to Delhi hoaxing them that they will get a job, were actually being sent to Gulf countries after being given commissions for each girl.
