|Four Nepal minors handed over to their parents|
SILCHAR, Jan 3 - Four Nepalese minor girls who were rescued from a local brothel here on November 18 last year were handed over to their parents by a Silchar Court on Thursday.
Sources said that the girls were rescued during a joint operation by Assam police along with Nepal-based NGO Shakti Samuha and based on an FIR by the NGO, a local lady who fostered the trade was also arrested in the operation . Later, the NGO had filed a plea before the court here following which the rescued girls were sent to a government rehabilitation centre.
“As the legal advisor of the Shakti Samuha , an NGO based in Nepal working mainly on anti-human trafficking cases, I am feeling happy to see the case closing on a positive note. The minor girls were a part of the seven girls who had been trafficked here with alluring promises of better living conditions. We had filed a petition for repatriation of the girls and verified the parents of the girls as well. Eventually, the Court head the case and gave the verdict to hand over the rescued girls to their parents,” said advocate Fanjowbam Lokenath.
