DCW rescues six women, issues notice to police

The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) on Friday said that six women, all residents of Nepal, were rescued from a house in Bhalswa in north-west Delhi.

“The girls in the age group of 18 to 25 were alone in the house and waiting for their placements abroad. The youngest member had a ticket to Imphal and all the girls had paid around ₹1 lakh each to their agent,” said the DCW. The commission has also issued a notice to the police seeking reasons “for not registering proper statements in the matter.”

Trafficking racket

DCW chairperson Swati Maliwal said, “Large-scale international human trafficking racket is suspected. The commission shall work with the police to curb trafficking in the city.”
