Ugandan women: AAP protests for safety
New Delhi, Feb 5 : The ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday protested at the Jantar Mantar here over illegal sex trade and safety of Ugandan women in the state.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Police have registered a First Information Report (FIR) against unknown persons after three Ugandan women of Khirki Extension here sought help from it against sex traffickers.
The Ugandan women filed the complaint reportedly with the aid of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's AAP government.
AAP leader and Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti on Jan 15 night ordered a raid at a building in Khirki Extension in south Delhi.
While the AAP justified the raid, Bharti was severely criticised and was accused of illegally detaining Ugandan women and forcing medical exams on them.
"We have been saying this from day one. We have been telling this is dangerous. Why was no action taken? Will Narendra Modi and Arun Jaitley apologise? The Delhi Police was hand-in-gloves (with the traffickers)," AAP spokesperson Ashutosh was quoted as saying by CNN-IBN channel.
The Delhi government and the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) are now trying to send the women back to their country.
"Three Ugandan women have requested that they be sent back. We have written to the Ugandan embassy," MEA spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin told media.
"The Delhi government has been in constant touch with the MEA over the matter," he added.
