Indian police claimed to have rescued a Bangladeshi teenage girl from human traffickers in North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal last week.
They also arrested a Bangladesh and an Indian youth -- Mohammad Saju and Al-Amin Mollah -- for their involvement with the trafficking, Indian police said yesterday, reports our Kolkata correspondent.
The 17-year-old girl, hailing from Kashiani upazila of Gopalganj, was rescued from Bashirhat Bortghat area on Wednesday, said Bhashkar Mukharjee, additional police superintendent of North 24 Parganas.
According to the victim, she set out with a woman to visit a relative’s house. But the lady took her at Bashihat Mahkuma Baduria border area and handed her over to Saju.
When Saju was handing her over to Mollah in Bortghat area, the girl threw a tantrum. Local police reached the spot immediately, rescued the girl and arrested the duo.
