Many runaway, missing boys reunited with their families
NEW DELHI: On the occasion of Children's Day, the Anti Human-Trafficking Unit of Delhi Police Crime Branch on Wednesday reunited several children,who had been rescued from railway stations and ISBT in Delhi, back to their families.
These 31 rescued children, all boys, had either run away from their homes or had been abandoned by their guardians and had landed up in Delhi.
Through meticulous investigation, the Crime Branch succeeded in locating family members of 17 of the 31 missing or runaway children.
Cops said that most were clueless about their whereabouts, had no idea about the future and had no place to go.
"Most children had boarded a train without a ticket and had reached railway stations in Delhi by default. All children belong to economically backward strata of society and almost all were school dropouts," said Aditional Commissioner of Police Rajiv Ranjan said on Wednesday.
