2 women, 1 man working as a domestic help, rescued from Arunachal

Sonitpur, June 15: In a successful rescue operation, two young women and an elderly man of 55 years, hailing from Sonitpur district of Assam, were rescued from a remote village in Arunachal Pradesh on Friday.

Based on specific inputs, a team of Itakhola Police led by Officer-in-Charge Bhaskar Jyoti Saikia launched a rescue operation and rescued the persons working as domestic helpers in a remote area in the neighboring state of Arunachal Pradesh.

The rescued girls alleged that a man lured them to Arunachal Pradesh on the pretext of offering a job, but instead they were handed over to a man who made them work as domestic help. The women, along with the other rescued man, were tortured by their owners.

After Itakhola police rescued the man, including two young women who had been living in a kind of captivity in Arunachal Pradesh for a long time, their family has now been freed from deep fear.
