Mumbai- Son missing since 15, mechanic turns crusader against child labour

Mechanic Bansi Rafukiya (35) remembers his last phone call with son Aditya in December 2015. He had scolded the 12-year-old for not performing well in academics. The next day, Aditya had packed his school bag, filled a water bottle, and left home in a red shirt. It has been over two years since he went missing. From a father desperately searching for his son, Bansi now helps rescue other kids from child labour. On several occasions, local residents sought him out to help rehabilitate runaway children. “In last two years I have called Childline several times to inform them about kids I find alone on streets. If I find police, I take their help. Whenever I hear of missing child case in any police station, I rush there. Someday may be some runaway kid provide link to my son,” he says.

Nagpur police have registered cases against 10 couples for trafficking youths to the UK by using fake passports. “Together, they have trafficked about 60 young men from 2007 till 2015.

Open trafficking

Following the 2015 Nepal earthquake, the Ministry of Home Affairs said that human trafficking from Nepal to India witnessed “a three-fold jump”. The Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) reported that most of the victims were minors, with girls and boys in equal numbers, and many were from the earthquake-affected districts of Nepal. In Dhangadhi and Rupandehi districts of Nepal, representatives of NGOs working on human trafficking said that quake-affected Sindhupalchowck district was among the key source districts for cross-border trafficking to India. A large number of women from this district left the country after the earthquake to find employment abroad, either through Rasuwagadhi or some other transit point along the India-Nepal border, said Asha from an NGO. “The destination countries for most of them were Kyrgyzstan, Israel, West Asia, and India. Many have also left for Kathmandu,” she said.

Politics Supreme Court seeks response from states over child trafficking issue

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday observed that the dignity of children must be protected and sought a response from all states and union territories on the issue of trafficking of children from orphanages.
