New Delhi: The Commission for Women (DCW) has rescued 39 women, all belonging to Nepal, from allegedly being trafficked to Gulf countries, the Commission said on Wednesday.
The Nepali women were rescued from a hotel in on Tuesday night, where they were kept, after being brought here on the pretext of employment, said Chairperson Swati Maliwal.
According to the DCW chief, these women belonged to earthquake-affected regions of Nepal and came from humble background.
In a tweet posted on Wednesday morning, Ms Maliwal, giving details about the rescued women, said “They have no savings. We are appealing to Nepal Government and NGOs working in Nepal to ensure jobs for them. So that they don’t fall prey to trafficking rackets again.”
The Commission had earlier rescued 16 women on July 25 from Delhi’s Munirka, who also hailed from the Himalayan country.
DCW has rescued 74 women from human traffickers in the last seven days, during three rescue operations, said the Commissions’ Twitter handle. (UNI)
