Kathmandu, July 25
Officials of the Delhi Commission for Women and local activists have said the Commission on Tuesday night arrested as many as 16 Nepali women from traffickers’ clutches.
It has been learned that the alleged victims were lured into following the traffickers as they were assured of lucrative jobs in Kuwait and Iraq via Delhi.
The Commission is a statutory body under the Government of Delhi, which is a union territory of India.
The Commission’s Chairperson Swati Maliwal held a meeting with Union Minister for Women and Child Development, Maneka Gandhi, and briefed her about the event today, according to reports.
Meanwhile, some activists have accused the government of ignoring such incidents as police who were just close to the place where the girls were rescued could not know anything about the trafficking activities there.
