DIMORIA: A sudden visit by Sonapur Circle Officer, Jenifer Yasmin Choudhury, to the Leo Brick Factory in Samotapothar near Sonapur, exposed the unethical application of child labours in the factory. The brick factory management had employed children in laborious work and three children were discovered and rescued by the Circle Officer.

Addressing the media, Choudhury said, “The factory has employed children for laborious works on meagre wages. This is clearly a case of exploitation. ” A Dumper and a JCB has also been seized by the Circle Officer due to their use in illegal tilting of land and have been handed over to the Forest Department. The owner of Leo Brick Factory has been served a notice for submission of the licence and permission on December 14 to the Circle Office, Sonapur.
