Ranchi, Feb 24 (PTI) Five girls and a boy, who were allegedly trafficked from Jharkhand’s Sahibganj and Godda districts, were rescued from Delhi, an official statement said here on Thursday.
Earlier this week, five girls trafficked from Gumla district had been rescued from Delhi after a tip-off to Integrated Resource-cum-Rehabilitation Centre (IRRC) on its toll-free number.
Nodal Officer, IRRC, Nachiketa said one of the rescued children, Seema Kumari (name changed), was sold four times in Delhi by her brother-in-law after being brought to the national capital.
“Another girl Aarti Kumari (name changed) was handed over to the human trafficker by her family members. This girl has been tortured mentally and physically in various ways. The rescued boy was also sold by his uncle,” the IRRC officer said.
A Dode, Director, Women and Child Development Department, said he has issued strict instructions to District Social Welfare Officers and Child Protection Officers of the districts to ensure rehabilitation of rescued children in their native places.
All rescued children will be linked with various schemes of the Jharkhand government to prevent them from becoming victims of human trafficking again, Dode said.
