600 #Trafficked #Children Rescued in #Kerala

About 600 children from the states of Bihar and Jharkand who were being taken on a train to a children’s shelter in Kerala, apparently on the pretext of being provided with food and education, were rescued when the police got a tip off that they were actually being trafficked. The children have now been temporarily housed in different shelters and orphanages.¬† The police say they are investigating the matter, but have arrested only 8 of the 43 adults escorting the children.
