Five children rescued from jeans factory

New Delhi: Another case of child exploitation inside Delhi's factory came to the fore after five children were rescued from jeans making unit in North East Delhi's Jaffrabad area on Thursday night. Police have not made any arrest in the case. The rescue was made by the Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) with the help of police and other senior officials.

"We have rescued five kids who were working in jeans factory. They were involved in packaging and taking goods from one place to another," said Roop Sudesh Vimal from the child rights body. He further stated that the children are residents of other states possibly Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. The investigation in the child labour case revealed that three kids were paid a few thousands of rupees for their long hours of work.

"We found that the two children were not given any money they were told to first learn the work in the unit and then they will be provided with some amount," said Vimal. It is being said that the two kids had been doing work for the last two weeks. "After the further probe, we will come to know about more details in the case," said police officer.

Ranjana Prasad member DCPCR said," children were living in a pathetic condition in the building without any proper ventilation."

Soon after the rescue work completed, people start to gather around the jeans manufacturing unit in Jaffrabad but the rescuers were successful in their operation. Police claimed that the investigation in the case is going on and no arrest has been made in the case.
