GUWAHATI: In a collaborative effort by social organisations from Silchar and Nepal, two Nepali women, including a young girl, were rescued from the red-light district of Silchar town in Cachar district of southern Assam on Monday night.
The traffickers led the captives to the brothel by promising them a better life. According to accounts, two traffickers brought a young victim from Pokhra, Nepal, to Silchar's red light district.
Her nice life and education were promised to her by the traffickers, who also took her to Silchar. She had been detained in Silchar at a brothel where a woman used to drug her and coerce her into prostitution.
The young girl was saved by the Cachar police, who then placed her in a shelter home after a required medical examination. The Nepali police also apprehended the two individuals who trafficked her.
The two organisations, Ujjawala NGO from Silchar and Maiti NGO from Nepal, are cooperating to free these women from the grip of the flesh trade ring. A few days ago, the team Maiti Nepal informed that a girl from Nepal had been trafficked to the red light district of Silchar.
They provided us with information, and we acted swiftly to rescue the girl and transfer her to a protective home with the cooperation of the Cachar police, according to Romila Ghosh, project director at Ujjawala.
Three years ago, the particular victim was initially brought to Delhi, and from there, she was transported to Silchar to engage in forced prostitution.
"The Maiti Nepal NGO team began funding both endeavours and made an effort to track down the children's parents in Nepal. Both of the girls have now been reunited with their relatives after their addresses were found through recorded police complaints, according to Romila Ghosh.
Before being given to their families in Nepal, the rescued ladies received counselling at the Ujjawala shelter house. Five trafficking girls were rescued from Silchar's red-light district last year, according to Gaurav Chanda, another member of the Ujjawala centre.
Among them are both adults and minors. Most of them had to leave because of their precarious financial situation, according to Chanda.
