12-yr-old pregnant girl rescued

NEW DELHI: Delhi Commission for Women has busted an alleged trafficking racket in East Delhi after the Women Helpline received a call from a group of parents who had come from Jharkhand searching for their missing children.
Along with the parents, there was a minor girl who had been trafficked along with other children but had managed to flee and reunite with relatives. The girl informed that she was getting calls from the trafficker woman who was luring her to come back to Delhi. The alleged trafficker ran a placement agency in East Delhi. This minor girl had earlier been placed in Bangalore where she was not paid for over 2 years.
On the tip-off, Chairperson DCW constituted a team. A trap was laid by DCW's Mobile Helpline team and the alleged trafficker was called to meet at Akshardham metro station. Here the trafficker and an accomplice arrived and met with the girl. They were caught with help of local police as they tried to take the girl with them. An FIR u/s 370 IPC and 75 JJ Act has been registered in PS Mandawali.
During interrogation, details of two minor girls were received who were subsequently rescued by DCW's Mobile Helpline team and local police, one aged 12 years from Janakpuri and another 13-year-old girl from Pitampura. The 12-year-old girl is allegedly pregnant. Separate FIRs have been filed against the employers in these two cases.
One minor boy was also rescued by DCW's Mobile Helpline team from Hisar, Haryana along with Delhi Police. The arrested placement agency owner and alleged trafficker were running the business from a very long time. Earlier too, several minors were rescued and cases were filed against the accused's family.
