Trafficking Victim Rescued Back
CHILDLINE 1098, Don Bosco PYaR in collaboration with Margadarshi Society and Samajika Parivartan Janaandolan (SPJ) rescued a 15 Years old girl, native of Bidar, being trafficked to Gujarath under guise of marriage on August 5, 2015. The case came to light as one of the co-passengers in the Gulbarga bound bus that they were travelling grew suspicious about the couple. The person telephoned CHILDLINE 1098 and informed the matter. As the couple reached Gulbarga, the rescue team spotted them and the couple was taken to police custody.

On counseling the girl, the team learnt that the parents of the girl had given her in marriage to a forty years old man from Gujarath after procuring money. The timely intervention of a concerned general public became instrumental in saving the life of a girl. The girl was handed over to her parents after warning them not to commit such mistakes in the future. The accused was arrested and imprisoned.
