Darjeeling: Timely intervention and coordination between various NGOs saved three minors from getting trafficked to Bihar.The rescue brings to light the fact that girls from this region are being lured to Bihar with assurances of handsome salaries to work as dancers in orchestras and then are trafficked. A Tiny Hands (NGO) team on a routine watch noticed two young girls with a woman standing at the ticket counter of the Bihar bus stand near Siliguri Railway Junction. “It aroused our suspicion as the girls had features showing that they were from the Hills whereas the woman looked like a person from the plains,” stated Binoy Tamang, Coordinator, Tiny Hands, Siliguri.
