17 May 2015, Jharkhand

A 14-year-old tribal girl was kept chained by her stepfather in a dark room over the last 11 months.
The rescue at the Chanho Block house was carried out on Saturday evening by officials of the Jharkhand State Commission for Protection of Child Rights, whose member said the ordeal was unprecedented in its brutality. The girl was chained allegedly by her stepfather.

“Some trafficked Jharkhand girls have been kept in similar condition by their employers and placement agents in Delhi and Mumbai in the past. But we haven’t come across any such case in Jharkhand before,” said Sanjay Mishra, senior member, JSCPCR.
