KATHMANDU: Two Indian nationals have been arrested in Nepal on the charge of girl trafficking. The two men, whose names were given as KS Narayan and Parameshwar Pandey, were arrested in Nepalgunj town, for allegedly trying to take away a 10-year-old Nepali girl from the Shitalnagar area of the town, the official Rastriya Samachar Samiti said. However, the state media did not say when the men were arrested or give any further details. Nepal, one of the poorest countries in the world, is also one of the worst victims of trafficking. Every year, thousands of women and children are trafficked across its southern border to neighbouring India, where they are either sold in brothels or forced to work as meagerly paid labourers or domestic help. Through India, they are also sent out to the Middle East countries.
