Trafficked into India

Tamasi* never got to study because of her family’s poor financial condition. Both her parents were farmers but they earn barely enough for the needs of their family of eight. When she reached the age of 21, she was married to a man who lives and works in another village. In their 3 years of marriage, Tamasi experienced nothing but abuse from her husband.

One day, while visiting a hotel with her sister, Tamasi met a woman named Sakhi*. They exchanged numbers, began to meet each other often, and became good friends. In one instance, Tamasi brought her husband with her to her sister’s hotel. Her husband was drunk and was told to go home, but he beat Tamasi in front of her sister and friend. Tamasi’s sister prohibited her from going home to her husband for fear that he will beat her again. She then went back to her parents and stayed them for a few days.

When Tamasi met her again, Sakhi told her that she could offer her a job so she can get away from her husband. Tamasi easily accepted her request thinking that Sakhi cared for her as a friend. The next day, they went to the bus station and took a direct bus to Delhi.

Tamasi didn’t know where they were going, nor did she notice when they crossed the border. The next day, they reached Delhi and was met by two other women. She was told that these women are the ones who will give her work and left her with the women. They took her to a hotel and offered her snacks. Sakhi promised to come back but she didn’t. Tamasi began to suspectsomething was not right, and grew more alarmed when she heard them talking about their work as prostitutes.

She managed to come up with an excuse to go out, saying she had to get the clothes that she washed earlier. She took the chance to run and went directly to the police. At first, they thought she was crazy because she didn’t wear proper clothes and footwear. She didn’t have any money with her as well and can’t even speak their language. Eventually, the police called a representative of 3 Angels Nepal. Tamasi recounted her story with them, and was assisted as she returned to Nepal.
