Here’s How Alert Rail Officials Rescued A 12 YO From Falling Victim To Human Trafficking

The Ministry of Railways has become quite social media savvy in recent years. From providing prompt medical assistance to taking action against reports of corruption, the ministry has been both fastidious and swift.

Most recently, during the routine check of Train 12357, Railway Protection Force (RPF) Mughalsarai, U.P., found a 12-year-old girl travelling alone. After questioning the girl, they discovered that she was an oblivious victim of human trafficking.

Human trafficking is a serious issue that’s plagued our nation for a very long time. Across the world, there are about 27 million adults and 13 million children who have fallen victim to this dark fate. Constant vigilance and prompt action is the only way for us to bring down these terrifying numbers. Like the Rail Ministry said, keep informing.
