Delhi Police rescue 39 Nepalese women from trafficking ring

In an early morning raid at a hotel in central Delhi, the Delhi Police Wednesday rescued 39 women trafficked from Nepal. In the past one week alone,  34 Nepalese women have been rescued in joint operations by Delhi Police and the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW).

The incident comes on the heels of a similar operation carried out by the Delhi and Varanasi police on Tuesday, where 18 Nepalese women — who claimed they were being trafficked to Gulf countries — were rescued from a house in southwest district. A week earlier, 16 Nepalese women were rescued from a residence in the same district, who also alleged that they were brought here by agents on the false pretext of providing jobs but were to be trafficked to Gulf countries.
