  Lucknow, November 01: In a shocking incident, four police constables in Gorakhpur held hostage 8 girls and boys from Nepal and sexually exploited two of the girls.

The incident came to light after the inspector general (IG) Gorakhpur was informed of the incident and deputed a team which then rescued the girls.

Two of the constables who were prima-facie found guilty were suspended and an inquiry was ordered into the incident to be conducted by a gazetted rank officer.

Though action from the IG‘s end was quick, doubts were being raised on the “will” of the police officers in terms of bringing the guilty to book.

Reports said that the incident came to light on Thursday afternoon after IG Gorakhpur Harish Chandra Kashyap received a call informing him that some Nepali boys and girls were being held hostage in a hotel room in Gorakhpur allegedly at the instance of four police constables.

On the basis of the tip-off, the IG rushed his special squad to Mallick Guest House in the city where preliminary enquiries revealed that 5 girls and 3 boys were holed up in room number 206 of the guest house.
