For Nepali Girls Abducted into Indian Brothels, Where is Home? - Habiba Nosheen & Anup Kaphle - International - The Atlantic
The room was sweltering and bare except for the bed. When 14-year-old Sunita Danuwar woke up, she had no idea where she was. She had on strange clothes; her hair had been cut. “And there were men staring at me like I was fresh meat,” says Danuwar. “I just sat there and cried.”
Danuwar, now 34, quickly learned that she — like 12,000 other Nepali women and girls a year — had been trafficked hundreds of miles away to an Indian brothel. She doubts her family sold her, but can’t be sure. The last thing she remembers is her parents befriending two young men, who gave her something sweet to eat. After that she fell unconscious.
