New Delhi: A joint operation carried out by Assam Police and Delhi Police on Tuesday rescued five girls from Assam’s Sonitpur district from three different places in Ghaziabad, Faridabad, and south Delhi.
Police officials said the five girls were missing since September this year from Sonitpur district in Central Assam, and their families had lodged missing diaries with the Assam Police.
After registering the cases, Assam Police started investigations, and found that a network of traffickers from Delhi was involved in the case.
Contacts were established with some New Delhi-based NGOs, who helped to identify the locations of the five missing girls from Sonitpur district in Assam.
Subsequently, raids were conducted jointly with Delhi Police and the five gorls were rescued from Ghaziabad, Faridabad, and south Delhi.
All the five girls have now returned home, police officials said. Meanwhile, police managed to arrest the kingpin of the gang. The person has been identified as Bhadra Orang.
