The Center keeps a special watch on Delhi and its adjoining border areas. In this sequence, we got a big success this time and 09 children of Sahebganj district were rescued by us from the border area of Delhi (which is adjacent to Haryana and Uttar Pradesh respectively) with the help of Delhi Police. Let us inform that just last Friday, 02 children from Ranchi district and 02 children from Dhanbad district have been rehabilitated back to Jharkhand with the escort team led by the Child Protection Officer of Ranchi district.

As soon as the Sahebganj district administration came to know that their children were rescued in Delhi, taking prompt action on this issue, under the direction of District Social Welfare Officer – Mrs. Suman Gupta, a team was formed under the leadership of District Child Protection Officer – Poonam Kumari. After camping in Delhi for the last 04 days, this team is returning to Jharkhand by train today with 09 children. It was informed by District Child Protection Officer Poonam Kumari that all these children will be continuously monitored by linking them with various schemes of Jharkhand Government so that children do not become victims of human trafficking again.

After that, work is being done to send the freed people safely to their home district, where they are being rehabilitated. The girls rescued in Delhi were brought through brokers.

Such touts are very active in Jharkhand who lure young girls to Delhi by luring them to live a good life in Delhi and sell them in various homes on the pretext of employing them. By which they get a hefty amount and the life of these girls is made worse than hell. Their parents also play an important role in sending girls to the clutches of touts. Many times it has been seen that girls come in the clutches of touts only with the consent of their parents and their relatives. 

All the districts have been given strict instructions by the Director of the Women and Child Development Department that in whichever district the children are rescued in Delhi, the District Social Welfare Officer and Child Protection Officer of the district rehabilitate the boys and girls back to their district.

Human trafficking can be stopped in the state of Jharkhand and can be saved from being a victim of trafficking. Office Assistant of Integrated Rehabilitation – cum – Resource Center – Mr. Rahul Singh and Counselor Ms. Nirmala Khalkho played a very important role in the escort team.
