Taking cognisance of  woman and her four-year-old child from Manipur who were rescued from suspected illegal organ traders in Chandigarh, state social welfare department has appealed to the public not to easily trust without proper verification when offered lucrative jobs outside the state.

The state social welfare department, in a press release, informed the public that Women Helpline Manipur in coordination with Manipur Students’ Association Chandigarh and Women Helpline Chandigarh rescued the woman and her four-year-old son, hailing from Thinungei Mayai Leikai of Bishnupur district on August 30 last.

As per the statement of the woman, she was taken to Chandigarh on the pretext of being offered a job on July 12 last. Soon after reaching Chandigarh, she grew suspicious when when instead of being offered the promised job, she was introduced to a man whose both the kidneys were damaged and needed kidney transplantation.

She was then subjected to a series of unnecessary medical tests.

In order to save herself, she escaped along with her child. She then met a member of the Manipuri Students’ Association Chandigarh and after narrating her ordeal, Women Helpline Manipur contacted its Chandigarh based counterpart and Manipur police department.

Currently, the mother and child are safe at a shelter home in  Chandigarh and immediate attention has been provided. 

Further investigation is currently underway by the Chandigarh police and necessary steps will be taken up accordingly, the release said.

The department (Manipur social welfare department) was working in close coordination with Manipur police and Women Helpline Chandigarh for repatriation of the mother and child to Manipur at the earliest, the release added.

The department further made an earnest appeal to the public not to trust easily without proper verification of any lucrative job offer outside the state by some individuals to avoid such unfortunate situation.

Further, any suspicious cases should be reported promptly to the police in time for verification of authenticity of such individuals who promise to provide lucrative jobs, the release added.
