Maiti Nepal Kanchanpur on Saturday evening rescued two girls who were being trafficked to India through Gaddhachowki border point.
The girls were being duped with a prospect of foreign employment. The estimated 22 years old from Sindhupalchowk and 30 years old from Solukhumbu were being taken on a bus (Ba 3 Kha 4168) towards New Delhi, India from Kathmandu when the anti-trafficking organization made the interception and rescued them.
“We rescued the girls as one of them were wearing a Lama’s rob under the pretext of being sent to Dharmasala in India,” Maiti Nepal Kanchanpur Coordinator, Maheshwori Bhatta said.
Another girl had been asked by the traffickers to wear Sherpa attire but she had declined, it was revealed in course of an interrogation.
