  1. How dare are these men and women to kidnap and sell the small girls… I really feel pity for such kids. Also appreciate the job done by Shakti Vahini team.. I request the law to issue shout at sight order to those who involve in these kinds of harassing activities.. These kinds of people are curse to a society.
