Human trafficker nabbed in Guwahati; 8 girls rescued

The Government Railway Police nabbed a human trafficker and rescued eight girls from her clutches in Guwahati on Saturday. According to GRP, eight girls were rescued from the Guwahati railway station and the woman trying to take the girls away from Assam was arrested. The girls were told that they would be given jobs in some spice factories in Kerala. The woman had brought the girls to Guwahati from Jonai in Dhemaji district of Assam.


The same woman had previously taken some other girls away from the remote areas of the district to unknown destinations by giving them hopes of employment. Those girls have, however, never returned to their families. Investigation is on to find out more details about the human traffickers' involvement in the incident and their network in the state.
