Cops from Delhi, Assam bust inter-state trafficking racket; 3 women rescued

In a joint operation spread over four states, Delhi Police arrested two human traffickers, and rescued an Assamese woman and two other women who were being trafficked to Rajasthan on Thursday.
The inter-state human trafficking syndicate was busted by the Special Task Force from South District after a team from Assam Police briefed senior Delhi Police officials about a trafficking case wherein an Assamese woman was kidnapped by members of the gang.

The gang would also traffic women to several districts in Haryana through a courier-based system.

"The police team from Assam informed us that the Assamese woman was abducted from Nagaon district in May. We constituted a Special Task Force, headed by ACP (Operations) Palwinder Singh Chahal," said DCP (South) Ishwar Singh.

The investigating team then undertook a technical analysis and later found that the two accused Altaf and Ram Kesh – both residents
of Ghaziabad – were identified as the Delhi-based operators of the trafficking racket.

The accused were then traced and arrested from Delhi.

They were interrogated by the police and it was found that the two accused had abducted the woman from New Delhi Railway Station and had thereafter sold her off to other members of the syndicate, namely Payal and Sunil Jha, who had been operating from Munirka in Vasant Vihar area.

After the Assamese woman confirmed the inputs given by Altaf and Ram Kesh, Payal and Sunil Jha were arrested by Assam Police.

"The accused further disclosed that they had abducted several women from various railway stations across Delhi and
sold them to Haryana-based traffickers.

Following up on this disclosure, the joint team, along with NGO Shakti Vahini, went to Kalanour in Rohtak, from where two more abducted women – one a resident of Kolkata and the other a minor and resident of Bhagalpur, Bihar – were rescued," Singh added.
