Human trafficking- NGO seeks direct state-to-state transfer of child labourers rescued from units

An NGO has approached the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) in Mumbai seeking direct state-to-state transfers of children rescued in raids against child labour. In a recent drive by the Mumbai Police, over 40 children each from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh were rescued from child labour. The NGO, Pratham, wrote last week to the Mumbai CWC requesting that instead of handing over the custody of the children to their parents, they should instead by sent to their homes by involving the local district authorities in their home state. “There is an apprehension that children, especially those below the age of 14 years, may be returned to child labour if they are not given access to benefits after being rescued. For such children, we have requested that the local district authorities of their home states be involved,” said Kishor Bhamre, programme director of Pratham Council for Vulnerable Children.
