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.
