The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) on Tuesday night has rescued 39 girls from a hotel in Paharganj area of New Delhi. As per the reports, the girls were trafficked from Nepal. After getting the information, the Commission raided the hotel after they had received a tip-off about several Nepalese girls being kept at the hotel.
"They were kept in the hotel on the pretext of job offers while they were being trafficked to the Gulf countries. Some girls have already been sent to Sri Lanka and we're not able to contact them," Maliwal told ANI.
"He should also give instructions to the Delhi police to stop all rackets of human trafficking" she added.
