RPF rescue two minors at railway station

Duo was missing from Rajasthan

The Railway Protection Force on Saturday rescued two minors, including a 16-year-old girl, who were allegedly trafficked from their home in Rajasthan.

The girl, and a boy, 17, arrived at Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna railway station with a man who had allegedly promised them lucrative jobs in the city, said the police.

Officials, on their rounds at the station, saw the minors being escorted by the man. When they stopped to question the man, he fled.

When the police tracked down their family in Rajasthan, they learned that a kidnap case had been filed with their jurisdictional police station last week.

Debasmita Chattopadhyaya Banerjee, Senior Divisional Security Commissioner, RPF, South Western Railway, said: “The minors are being counselled. We are trying to ascertain the identity of the accused who brought them to Bengaluru.”

He added that dedicated child rescue teams, under Operation Nanhe Farishte, have rescued 1,400 children in Bengaluru this year.
