Kapilvastu, Nepal: Two teenagers have been rescued while being taken to India through Kapilvastu’s Krishnanagar border crossing. They were rescued from the Krishnanagar border area with the coordination of Afanta Nepal and Nepal Police team.
Kapilvastu and Dang residents were interrogated when they tried to take the 17- and 18-year-old girls to India respectively. “They tried to cross the border under the pretext of going for meat purchase,” said Barsha Magar, of Afanta Nepal.
It has been revealed that Renu Sunar, a resident of Dalpur, Bijaynagar Rural Municipality-5 of Kapilvastu, is taking the girls to Bangalore, India for the purpose of dancing. Initially, they were going to the Indian market to buy meat, and later they were kept under suspicion.
Consultant Magar informed that the investigation has been started as it seems to be more suspicious after repeated calls from Indian numbers.
According to Keshar Bishwokarma, Regional Coordinator of Afanta Nepal, it is understood that they tried to lure the teenagers to pay 2,000 Indian rupees a day for a dance bar after interrogation and investigation. He said that the rescued girl was kept in the safe house of Afanta Nepal on Thursday.
A case has been registered against the woman under the Human Trafficking and Smuggling Act and the investigation is being carried out by the District Court, Kapilvastu, said Area Police Officer Sukdev Poudel, Krishnanagar.
