Sold by Her Uncle

Sachi (not her real name) is 16 and lives with her uncle and aunt. She started living with them after her parents passed away when she was still a young child. As the financial difficulties increased, Sachi started joining her uncle and aunt in daily labour work. The work was physically difficult for her to do but she worked hard.

Sachi’s uncle was looking for an easier job for her. One of his friends told him that he could find an easier job for her in a hotel as a cleaner with better pay than what she was currently doing. Sachi started working in the hotel. After a month, she was asked by the owner of the hotel to “treat a customer well”. In the beginning, she did not understand what he meant. She refused when she realized what was being asked of her. However, that wasn’t enough and she was abused without her consent.

Sachi asked the owner of the hotel to let her go. But he refused. He told her that he bought her with money and now he owns her. He will not let her go until he recovers the amount he paid for her.

Through an informant, our partners became aware of Sachi’s situation and went to rescue her from the hotel along with the local police team. She was rescued, and the perpetrators were arrested by police.
