Worksite school for children of brick kiln workers begins in Telangana, 185 students enroll for classes

Their tiny hands, accustomed to holding bricks, held the slates for the first time in wonder. Most of them had never worn a school dress before nor had been to a proper school. So, when a worksite school for children of brick kiln workers from Odisha was inaugurated at Peddakondur village in Yadadri Bhongir district in Telangana last Saturday, they were overjoyed. They got new uniforms, slates, or notebooks, textbooks, pencils and pens depending on their age. Initiated by Rachakonda Police Commissioner M M Bhagwat, who received the Trafficking in Persons Report Hero award in 2017, and Yadadri District Collector Anita Ramchandran and Aide et Action NGO, the school enrolled 182 children of migrant labourers and the classes started on Monday. Aide et Action brought in five Odiya volunteer teachers trained in multi-grade teaching. They have started taking the classes from class 1 to 5 for children aged 3 to 12 years. The NGO is also providing Odiya medium textbooks and supervision of the school.

Kailash Satyarthi pitches for global agency to probe trafficking, sex offences

Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi on Thursday said there is a need for setting up a global agency for investigation and prosecution of human trafficking and sex offences to tackle this modern day slavery. Speaking here at the World Economic Forum (WEF), he also suggested setting up a traffickers’ registry to name and shame the perpetrators of such organised crimes. “I demand a global agency be urgently set up by the United Nations to investigate and prosecute traffickers and sex offenders. The work needs to start with listing global sex offenders and companies using slaves and child labour with ensuring a traffickers registry to name and shame perpetrators of this organised crime,” he said. Satyarthi also urged corporates to lead the charge to end modern slavery.

Whistles in Uttarakhand buses for women to fight abuse

Dehradun: In a Dehradun city bus recently, four men abused and assaulted a girl, eventually smashing a bottle on her head. Though they were all arrested later, it was another terrifying instance in a growing list of women and girls being harassed while using public transport in Uttarakhand. This had come just after a girl in December last year tweeted to chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat and shared with him her harrowing experience in a city bus on the Premnagar route. The Uttarakhand police in a novel initiative has now launched Project Awaaz to make city buses safer for women passengers. Under the project, which is a first-ofits-kind, whistles have been placed on every seat for women to blow and alert in case they face any harassment.

Sexual abuse on 10-year-old Kankurgachi girl, one held

Kolkata: A 10-year-old girl, studying in Class IV of an English medium school in eastern suburban Kolkata, was allegedly sexually assaulted by a 27-year-old youth. The incident was reported from an affluent Kankurgachi area on the morning of the Republic Day when the survivor was returning home from school after attending a programme. The cops, though, claimed that the girl was alone at home as her mother had gone out for work. The suspect then allegedly entered her residence and sexually abused her. Her cries alerted locals who rushed to an abandoned garage and caught the youth red-handed. The Phoolbagan police have arrested the suspect and slapped section 7 and 8 of the Pocso Act, along with IPC sections 354 (sexual harassment), 354D (stalking), 448 (house trespassing), 341 (wrongful restraint) and 509 (insulting modesty of woman), on him. The incident has sent shockwaves across the neighbourhood. Binit Gupta, the suspect and a resident of the Kankurgachi pos toffice area, was produced at the special Pocso Court.

Raids on houses of accused in human trafficking racket

Nagpur: The crime branch squads on Wednesday conducted searches at the houses of the four accused in custody for their involvement in trafficking illegal immigrants to United Kingdom between 2007 and 2015. Advocate Shiv Kumar Rathod, arrested late on Tuesday, too was remanded to police custody for three days by the court on Wednesday. The crime branch has also traced out five illegal immigrants, who have now come back and settled in the city.

Traffickers on the prowl, Barkheta awaits return of its children

LATEHAR (JHARKHAND): Amidst vast farmlands surrounded by hills and dense forest, in a dark mud hut, a mother waits for her 14-year-old daughter. Only a human guide, not GPS, can take you to Barkheta village, 40km off the Latehar-Daltonganj highway on a red mud path carved out of the forest.Here, 230 km from the state capital Ranchi and in the shadow of hills infested with Maoists, one finds a story of human trafficking that can be traced back to the national capital and beyond. The village is home to tribes like Oraon, Kharwar and Lohar. The trafficking nexus at work here came to light when a 15-year-old girl, who escaped from her employers house in Dwarka in Delhi, returned to her village in Latehar earlier last year. She was employed as a domestic worker. It was her tale of exploitation at the hands of the trafficker, Shabnam, that brought parents of eight children -- seven girls and one boy -- from Barkheta to Delhi in October last year.
