BSF troops rescue child from human traffickers

The three-and-a-half year old boy was rescued from village Takamari, bordering Bangladesh in Dhubri district.

Border Security Force (BSF) troops deployed on the Indo-Bangladesh border in the Dhubri sector in western Assam have rescued a minor boy from the clutches of suspected human traffickers and handed him back to his parents.

The three-and-a-half year old boy was rescued from village Takamari, bordering Bangladesh in Dhubri district, during an operation carried out on Saturday evening.

The boy was kidnapped by one Moinuddin of village Takamari and was kept in captivity in the house of one Kismat Ali with the intention of taking him across to Bangladesh in lieu of a huge sum of money. Even as the BSF troops conducted a raid in the village and managed to rescue the boy, the kidnapper and his associate, however, managed to escape, BSF sources said.

The boy, however, was not able to tell his parents name and address except that they work in a brick kiln. The BSF has handed the child to the local police.
