Suspected Trafficker Now in Police Custody

Sapna is 16 and is from a large family. Her family is poor. Both of her parents work hard as daily laborers. Due to their poor economic background, she had to quit her studies after the 10th grade and start working. She worked hard to help her family but due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the nationwide lockdown created extreme financial hardship for Sapna and her family.

She received a call from an unknown number. At first, she was reluctant to talk but after no time at all, they started a good conversation. He revealed himself as a man with dual citizenship and if she married him, she would lo longer struggle financially.

They made plans to go to India but didn’t inform her parents about their plan. As they were on their way to India, they were stopped at the border by our partners, 3 Angels Nepal. After being stopped at the border, they started to behave strangely, so were brought to the Help Desk. After listening to her story, the team explained to Sapna how traffickers tell false stories of a future free from poverty. They explained the possible consequences of leaving home with a person whom she just met on the phone. Her parents were contacted and she returned home.

The man was arrested and is currently under police custody pending further investigation.

 

WE NEED YOUR HELP

We need to intercept these girls even before they cross the border. Your support of USD 100 will fund the interception of a girl. If you are a company or an organization, for USD 8,500 you could fund an entire monitoring station for a year.
