Guwahati, March 23.
In a collaborative effort by social organisations from Silchar and Nepal, two Nepali women, including a young girl, were rescued from the red-light district of Silchar town in Cachar district of southern Assam on Monday night. The traffickers led the captives to the brothel by promising them a better life. According to accounts, two traffickers brought a young victim from Pokhra, Nepal, to Silchar’s red light district. Her nice life and education were promised to her by the traffickers, who also took her to Silchar. She had been detained in Silchar at a brothel where a woman used to drug her and coerce her into prostitution. The young girl was saved by the Cachar police, who then placed her in a shelter home after a required medical examination. The Nepali police also apprehended the two individuals who trafficked her.
The two organisations, Ujjawala NGO from Silchar and Maiti NGO from Nepal, are cooperating to free these women from the grip of the flesh trade ring. A few days ago, the team Maiti Nepal informed that a girl from Nepal had been trafficked to the red light district of Silchar.
