Jodhpur: The District Legal Service Authority (DLSA) has taken steps to send four girls who were lodged in Nari Niketan. All of them were brought to Jodhpur from Bangladesh by human traffickers. Two of these girls had been brought in lure of housework while other two were brought for prostitution.
On the basis of the report, justice G K Vyas has directed DLSA to coordinate with home department and help these girls getting back to Bangladesh as soon as possible. Secretary of Rajasthan State Legal Services Authority Dheeraj Sharma said that a retired government officer (CTO) Manphool Kumar Verma was sent to Nari Niketan as Para Legal Volunteer (PLV) to prepare a detailed report on the status of these four girls so that steps could be taken to send them back. "Two girls were rescued by the police on September 5 from a gang of human traffickers which forced them into prostitution.
DLSA has directed to pay them compensation and also help them in sending Bangladesh back," said Sharma. Verma said that other two girls were lodged in Nari Niketan in 2012 and 2014 by police after they were found roaming around.
"Both these girls were brought to Jodhpur from Bangladesh by human trafficking gang in lure of providing job as house maids here. But, few days after landing in Jodhpur, they tried to flee and found their way into Nari Niketan," said Verma.
It may be recalled that Jodhpur police had recently busted a human trafficking racket and had rescued two girls of 14 and 18 years, who were brought by this gang in Rai Ka bagh area on the nights of September 5 and 6. When these two girls were sent to Nari Niketan, it was found that two more women aged 26 and 22 years, had been languishing there since 2014. They also said to have been brought by the same gang operated by Sujoy Biswas.
