Trafficking survivor saves Siliguri bar girl

A Faridabad girl, trafficked to Kolkata 12 years ago, took on a ruthless band of traffickers and spent Rs 15,000 of her hard-fought savings to rescue another trafficked girl from a bar in Siliguri recently. Spurred by the memory of how her own flight to freedom was foiled by her traffickers years ago, she not only reached out to save the 22-year-old bar girl -who was kidnapped as a 12-year-old -but also helped police bust a pan-India racket that was operating for over a decade. A seven-week operation, spread across four states and involving five agencies, succeeded in reuniting the girl with her family in Delhi.
Two other trafficked girls, including a minor, were also rescued from Kurukshetra. The rescued girl's parents had filed an FIR at Hauz Khas police station 10 years ago. It got buried as just another missing person's case -one of thousands filed and forgotten every year. By a turn of fate, the Faridabad girl met the younger girl at a pub in Siliguri in May this year. She instantly knew what to do. She found that someone named Veeru had sold her to the Siliguri pub for Rs 15,000. Her own agony reflected in another's eyes, she started counselling her to break out.
