Two child labourers rescued

The Anti-Human Trafficking Unit on Wednesday rescued two children working as labourers and registered a case against two hotel owners. Acting on a tip-off, the unit raided two hotels near the Central Bus Stand, where they found two children, aged 14 and 15.

Both of them are natives of Uttar Pradesh and were working as laborers. An official reported that the children were subsequently produced before the Child Welfare Committee, which has since placed them in a children's home. The hotel owners are now facing charges for employing underage labour.
