Six kids trafficked, alleges NGO rights panel pulls up CWC

The Maharashtra State Commission for Protection of Child Rights has asked the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) to submit an inquiry report into the case of six minors, who were allegedly trafficked from Odisha and Chhattisgarh last year to work as labourers in Goa. On August 18 last year, the commission had received a complaint from an NGO, which alleged that six minors, two of them girls, were released by Mumbai’s Dongri Observation Home without following standard operating procedure (SOP). While the girls were sent to the home by the CWC on August 5 last year, they were released four days later. The commission is now probing why the CWC, despite recording the statements of the children, in which they had admitted to being taken to Goa for fishing work by a handler, did not submit its findings to police to investigate the trafficking angle. The complaint was filed by Pratham NGO, which had rescued the children from Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT), on August 4 last year. The six children were aged between 13 and 17 years. While three were from Odisha, the rest belonged to Chhattisgarh. They were rescued when they alighted at LTT station to take another train to Goa.
