Alina (name Changed), a girl from Orissa, was 12 years old when she was lured by her own uncle, S. N. Saho who promised her of a better prospect and lived with another family far from Nagaland for more than four years before she was finally on April 30. Alina’s mother, a daily wage labourer barely earning Rupees 50 a day, took care of her after her father passed away when she was a minor. Kidnappers threatened Alina and her mother, presently residing at Balijan, Assam with dire consequences if they told anyone about their condition. Having learnt about Alina’s case at the Assisi School, Dimapur in February 2009, the Apocalypse Justice Mission (Northeast) AJM, an NGO that seeks to help victims of oppression, stood beside her family through the periods of investigation and counseling. With a determined AJM team fighting for her protection, Alina’s mother found the courage to battle through complicated and intimidating legal proceedings and charges against her own brother-in-law. Finally, on April 22, Saho was arrested from Lahorijan with the joint effort of both the Assam and Nagaland police. Saho works as a night watchman at CSD depot, Supply colony and used to stay at Dhobinala and Lahorijan. Alina was traced to Arunachal Pradesh and is now re-united with her family members. The AJM Apocalypse Justice Mission has thanked chairman, Hi-Tech construction, Kuchi Zeliang for his support during the investigation. During a follow-up visit, Alina told an AJM team, “From now on, I will be very happy because AJM helped me come back. I never thought that I could do it. I am here now, standing strong.” The AJM with its base in Kohima seeks to restore to victims of oppression the things that God intended for them: their lives, liberty, dignity, the fruits of their labor etc. AJM helps victims of oppression regardless of their religion, ethnicity or gender. AJM comprises of various individuals drawn from different professions. They come together for the protection and long term care of the society and to bring about social justice, particularly with the victims of child and human trafficking, child labour and violence of any degree.
