NEW DELHI: The staff of AHTU, Crime Branch celebrated Teacher's Day with32 children, who had been rescued by AHTU in the last fortnight under Operation Milap. All these rescued children are boys in the age group of 12 – 15 years.

The Anti Human Trafficking Unit (AHTU) of Crime Branch acts as the Nodal Agency for all other AHTUs in Delhi Police.

32 such children were rescued by AHTU under Operation Milap,in the last fortnight. 13 out of these 32 children are being handed over to their respective family members on the auspicious occasion of 'Teacher's Day' today.

All these 32 children are boys who are between the age group of 12 to 15 years. Efforts are being made to trace the family members of the remaining 19 boys who will be restored to their families soon. Most of these children, had either run away from their homes or had been abandoned by their guardians and had landed up in Delhi.

"During the current year from 1st January 2019 till date, AHTU Crime Branch has rescued 408 children so far, from Bus Stands and Railway Stations of Delhi under the Delhi Police initiative called Operation 'MILAP'. In the corresponding period last year 2018, AHTU had rescued 373 children under Operation Milap so far," said Rajiv Ranjan, Additional Commissioner of Police Crime.

This scheme aims at uniting missing children with their parents/family members. This scheme is run by the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit (AHTU) of the Crime Branch of Delhi Police.

Under this scheme, AHTU carries out a special drive to periodically check all the Bus Stands, Railway Stations, and other places in Delhi to look for unattended/stray children. Extensive help by NGOs is taken in the drive.

The rescued children are counselled and also given requisite medical attention where ever so required.

The AHTU also visits Children Homes across the city and makes an effort to track down the parents of children who may be lodged in these Children Homes but are unable to reveal much about their actual families or home

addresses.

AHTU Crime Branch officials try to search for the parents of the children rescued so that these children can be restored with their respective families.

Photographic database of these children is also undertaken by the concerned police officials to link them properly.
