A shocking report of RSS affiliated organizations involving in trafficking of girl children has emerged and the administration and the government seem to have consciously failed to take cognizance of these reports.
Sewa Bharati, a social service organisation affiliated to the RSS have been found to have trafficked 31 tribal girls from Assam to Gujarat and Punjab in June last year according to reports simultaneously published by Outlookmagazine and Cobrapost on Friday. Along with Sewa Bharati, Rashtriya Sevika Samiti another organization associated with RSS was also found to be involved in the trafficking of girls from Assam.

Over 5000 children trafficked 

Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of the Crime Branch, Delhi Police rounded up the local handlers involved along with the girls when they alighted from a train. The report is hugely significant in the light of the fact that over 5000 children have gone missing in Assam between 2012 and 2015.


Findings of an earlier probe
A 2010 Supreme Court directive barred children below the age group of 12 from being sent outside Assam and Manipur for education. The directive was given as there were reports of large scale trafficking of girls the north-east states. A probe had found trafficking of 76 children from these states, most of them minor girls. A lot of these girls were sent to “homes” run by Christian missionaries in Tamil Nadu.


No action & No results

ADGP, CID, Assam Police, and marked it to the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights termed the incident ‘against the provision of Juvenile Justice Act 2000’. The commission directed the police ‘to initiate a proper inquiry into the matter and take all necessary steps to bring back all 31 children to Assam for their restoration’ besides the police were asked to submit an Action Taken Report to the ASCPCR within five days of receipt of the letter. However, despite the orders, no action was taken; no report was filed; no cognisance was taken by the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights of the central government headed by the BJP.
