Yesterday, IJM assisted police to find a young Nepali woman in a major red-light district. The team brought her out of the brothel where she had been exploited for sex.
"The Criminal Investigations Department and the local police worked quickly and efficiently to rescue this girl," said IJM Kolkata Field Office Director Biju Mathew. "We are all grateful that she does not have to be abused by brothel customers and instead can rest in a home and in a bed that is safe."
IJM will continue to support this trafficking survivor as she receives care and counselling in an aftercare home.
