Mumbai: A 27-year-old fashion designer was allegedly forced into prostitution and raped by several men in last June in Dubai.

The victim alleged in her statement to the Khar police on Thursday that a woman, who runs a boutique in Khar (W), had offered her a job in Dubai. After reaching there, she was confined to a room and raped over a period of 25 days.

The victim, a resident of Goregaon (West) who is a diploma holder in fashion designing, completed a fashion designing course in 2012.

She came into contact with the boutique owner through one of her friends a few months before June last year.

When she told the boutique owner that she was looking for a job, the woman offered her one in Dubai.

The woman promised the victim that she would get a salary of Rs4 lakh per month. She took her to Dubai on June 1, 2013, on a tourist visa.

The victim agreed to shift her base to Dubai for a better career. She even took a loan of Rs. 10 lakh from her uncle and gave it to Anjali for arranging a visa, air tickets and accommodation.
 
When the victim reached Dubai on June 1 last year, Anjali confiscated her passport on the pretext of depositing it at the reception of the hotel.
 
By June 27, 13 men had raped her at different times. After getting the passport back from Anjali, the victim rushed back to Mumbai and registered a complaint against Anjali Agrawal at Khar police station.
