The Project Officer, Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDA), Utnoor, Janardhan Nivas, on Thursday rescued five tribal children employed by a building contractor at Utnoor.

The rescued child labourers were admitted into the Asifabad Ashram School immediately thereafter. On noticing the children working on the construction site within the ITDA premises itself, the Project Officer interacted with them and learnt that all were school dropouts from Birsaipet in Utnoor mandal. The children were persuaded to rejoin a school and continue education. The child labourers were despatched in a special vehicle to the Asifabad school.
