Jamshedpur: Steps to curb human trafficking on rail discussed 


Jamshedpur, May 8:A coordination meeting was held at Tatanagar station on Sunday to check the increasing cases of human trafficking and to expedite the action. The meeting was held under the chairmanship of assistant security commissioner K.C Nayak.

Officers and constables of RPF working in Ranchi, Chakradharpur, Jharsuguda and other places of South Eastern Railway participated. The main objective of this meeting was to identify human traffickers, to bring back the women trapped in their clutches to their safe homes.

It may be noted that  assistant security Commissioner KC Nayak directed all RPF officers and constables to take action by identifying such cases while on duty.

In this work, the District Legal Services Authority (Dalsa) was asked to work in coordination with the PLV and Child Line. He said that whoever has such information, exchange it with each other so that such incidents can be prevented. Also, action can be taken against the culprits.

It was also discussed in the coordination meeting that human traffickers move more by trains than by road. Especially trains are used to take such people to other states. All the RPF personnel were asked to identify such people and take action while being vigilant while on duty.

He directed to hand over the minor to the Railway Child Line in case the minor is caught. At the same time, on receiving such information from the rural areas from the PLV of Dalsa, it was asked to cooperate in its verification. In the meeting, RPF (Tata in-charge) SK Tiwari apprised about the disclosure of many such cases and the action taken to nab the gang members.

Be aware that the Supreme Court is also strict regarding human trafficking. In this regard, the court has also sent a letter to the governments of all the states and directed to constitute a trafficking unit (team). It is to be known that in the light of the above order, the Railway Board has given necessary instructions in this regard to the departmental and RPF officers. At the same time, AHTU (Anti Human Trafficking Unit) has been formed in South Eastern Railway Division. However, the Nanhe Farishte and Mai Saheli team are already working in this direction.
