New Delhi: All eight accused involved in the elopement of a teenager and her subsequent rape and confinement have been arrested, including her boyfriend and two human traffickers, police said on Sunday.

Accused Abhishek, 18, Ravi, 32, Rinki, 30, Rohit, 22, Mukesh, 25, Intezar, 33, Heena, 27, and Ashok Goyal, 38, were arrested from Delhi, Gurugram and Ghaziabad during raids on Saturday and Sunday.

They had sexually assaulted her, confined her at various places in the National Capital Region and later sold her to a spa owner here over a period of one month.

"The 16-year-old girl had eloped with her friend Abhishek on June 30 from west Delhi's Sultanpuri area. He took her to Haridwar where he raped her.

They returned to Delhi four days later and stayed at the Old Delhi Railway Station, where they met Ravi," Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Rajender Singh Sagar told IANS.

"Ravi promised Abhishek help to land a job and sheltered them at his house in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad. Ravi left Abhishek at Gurugram the next day and returned home to rape the girl in the absence of his live-in partner Rinki," Sagar said.

"Ravi and Rinki later sold the girl to two traffickers Heena and Intezar, who contacted spa owner Ashok Goyal and sold her to him in Rohini," the ADCP said.
