Human trafficking racket with tentacles in your house


NEW DELHI: An exemplary act of courage by a 20-year-old woman, a resident of Jharkhand, has helped Delhi Police to bust one of the most organized human trafficking rackets operating in the capital.

Even as four men were arrested, cops claimed in the past two years at least 45 girls from Orissa, Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Assam were brought to the capital after being sold in their home states for as little as Rs 15,000-20,000. They were promised “respectable jobs” as maid servants and customer care executives, only to be resold in the city at double the price the agent paid their relatives.

The Union ministry of home affairs has now asked all states and union territories, especially Delhi, to form an antihuman trafficking unit to curb such activities. “We have asked the ACP of each of the district investigating units (DIUs) to lead the unit in their respective district. The crime branch will act as the nodal agency to curb trafficking in the capital,” said asenior crime branch officer.
