News : Now, Helpline to Check Trafficking
Ranchi, India, July 7, 2016 -- Rath Mela, the biggest annual fair of the city which started on Wednesday, attracts a thousands of devotees from neighbouring states like Bihar, Odisha and West Bengal. While this 10-day fair is one of the biggest market for traders and buyers, it is also a common ground for human trafficking.
Every year, hundreds of girls go missing after visiting the fair and most of them are never found. Sita Swansi of Diya Seva Sansthan (DSS) which works against human trafficking said, "We have come across many cases in the past years where girls have been lured by jobs and then trafficked outside the state."
CID Jharkhand has devised a plan. CID IG Sampat Meena said, "We have displayed helpline number 9771432103 everywhere across the fair along with the police control room number so that if anybody sees any suspicious activity, they can call up on this number."
The police force deployed at the fair have been given special directions to keep an eye on the suspicious people who may look like traffickers and are seen convincing vulnerable girls.
Meena said, "While the police is on an alert, people visiting the fair should also be alert and if they come across anything suspicious, they should immediately inform the police."
