It is quite a shocking figure. 200 children were rescued from Gujarat border on early Sunday morning. The children were taken to Gujarat for the purpose of labour. Rajasthan State government, district adminitration and police jointly performed a huge act in another state saving children under the anti-human trafficking act. The action was taken after a consecutive 3-day recce followed by a raid to save these innocent children.
Sitaram Society in Surat was making these children work in the saree factory. The children were made to work for 14 hours. The contractors deduct their commission amount and send the daily wages to the parents of these chidlren directly.
It is extremely shocking that 200 children were made to live in different 3-floored buildings and houses. 10 of these children are from Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh and the rest are from Udaipur.The children were taken aback by the sudden raid and the society was in for a shock. These 200 children were brought back to Udaipur late Sunday night.
The anti-human trafficking act began picking up speed in November when 25 children were rescued from a bus in Saira which was heading to Surat. This is when police came to know about Sitaram Society in Surat. When the children were counselled, the details of the society started pouring out and Rajasthan State government, district adminitration and police joined hands to unveil this racket.
The rescued children wil be counselled and each will sent to school to save their childhood from being spoiled. Every child needs to be educated. The trouble is that the tribal areas send their children to earn since their means of livelihood are limited.
