KAPILVASTU — Six girls have been rescued from Marjadpur border point in Yashodhara Rural Municipality of Kapilvastu district on Sunday.
Police rescued the girls while they were en route to other countries via India after a middleman lured them with hopes of better employment opportunities.
Officials of the Armed Border Security Force said that the girls were rescued based on a tip-off. Inspector of the Nepal Armed Police Force Amrit Dulal said the girls — two from Kapilvastu and four from other districts — were interrogated and were rescued later on.
Likewise, middleman Ganesh Khatri has been handed over to the Police Post in Marjadpur, Kapilvastu. Local residents are of the view that trafficking of girls is taking place from this border point for lack of social organisations to work against this issue in the area.Follow @gorkhapost
