Child workers rescued
Fourteen child labourers were on Tuesday rescued from bangle making units in the capital during a raid conducted there.

The raids were conducted by authorities with the aid of three NGOs Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA), Child Line and Prayas in Jahangirpuri.

In a statement issued by BBA, Sub-Divisional Magistrate Rajinder Gupta led the operation, which also involved officials from police and Labour Department.

‘All the children are between 6-15 years of age and most of the rescued children belong to villages of Bihar. They were working here for a period of 6-10 months,’ the statement said.

The children were working in extremely unhealthy conditions and were involved in hazardous activities at work, BBA said.
