The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) rescued 39 girls who were trafficked from Nepal. This is a second such case in just a week. The DCW found the girls at a hotel in Pahargani area late last night.
The DCW Chief Swati Maliwal reported the girls were brought to Delhi on the pretext of a job. She said, “They were kept in the hotel on the pretext of job offers while they were being trafficked to the Gulf countries. Some girls have already been sent to Sri Lanka and we’re not able to contact them.”
In the last one week, a total of 73 girls were rescued from various areas in the national capital. The DCW Chief also appealed to the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to intervene and take stringent action. The rescued girls were taken to a shelter home. She further added, “He should also give instructions to the Delhi police to stop all rackets of human trafficking.”
Last week, the DCW rescued 16 girls who were trafficked from Nepal. The DCW found the 16 girls at an apartment in Munirka area in Delhi. The girls were brought to India on the pretext of getting lucrative jobs in Kuwait and Iraq.
