Two Manipuri women, who were allegedly trafficked, were rescued here on Sunday afternoon after they were forced to work as domestic help in the city.
Manohar Elavarthi of Praja Rajakiya Vedike, which was involved in the rescue operation, said the girls were lured by agents and were promised jobs in a beauty parlour along with free food and accommodation. However, they were made to work as domestic help much against their wishes. Although the girls wanted to go back to Manipur, their employers did not allow them to go out or talk to anyone. One of the girls managed to call her mother in Manipur and the parents contacted the association for help. The members of the PRV located the agent on the pretext of employing the girls. “They initially asked us for money but we managed we rescue the girls,” he said. Mr. Manohar said that they would soon approach the City Police Commissioner regarding the matter as well. Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) H.S. Revanna said; “We were informed about the incident by a third party but we have not received any complaint,” he said.
