NEW DELHI/AGRA: A 15-year-old trafficking victim was rescued by a joint team of Agra police, NGO Shakti Vahini, and NCPCR (National Commission for Protection of Child Rights). The girl, from Darjeeling, had been brought to UP and was being forced into marriage. She was rescued from a house in Tundla-Agra Road on September 6.
The girl was trafficked on September 1. A missing report had been filed after the girl’s mother complained to police. The mother suspected one Arun, who stays in Agra. After running from pillar to post, the victim’s mother contacted Shakti Vahini, which reported the matter to NCPCR. Raids were conducted and the girl was finally rescued. During counselling, the girl said trafficker Arun had brought her to Tundla by Mahananda Express. From Tundla she was taken to Agra. The girl also said the trafficker was showing her around to sell her off.
