Two non-local teenaged girls from Dimapur who were estranged from their parents were reunited on Monday. The reunion was made possible due to the efforts of Community Educational Centre Society (CECS) Dimapur; Delhi based NGO Prayas and Delhi police, who brought them to Dimapur via train.
Giving a detailed account of the story, Project Director CECS Subo Longkumer informed that the first girl, aged around 13 years, was found by Delhi police on June 1, 2007 after she ran way from her employer’s residence in Delhi.
It was reported that her owners used to beat her up every now and then. He also further informed that the ‘missing girl’ was working as a maid in a house in Dimapur but was sent to Delhi by her employer.
The second girl ran away from home after her parents chided her for wanting to work outside Dimapur with one of her neighbors, who reportedly was into human trafficking. In her anger, she left home, boarded a train to meet her grandmother in Jagi Road but however slept off and reached Delhi instead.
On reaching Delhi, she was picked up by the RPF and was later handed over to Prayas, an NGO based in Delhi.
Meanwhile, project director, CECS Subo Longkumer expressed gratitude to Prayas and Delhi for the cooperation extended in reuniting the two girls with their parents.
