Recently, the government of India passed the Trafficking of Persons Bill. This law renders all forms of human trafficking illegal in the country.

Now, people are starting to put the new law into action. On the morning of August 1st, the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) rescued at least 39 Nepali girls from a Hotel Hridey Inn in Paharganj.

The DCW had been tipped off about the trafficked women beforehand. The raid lasted through the entire night.

The DCW’s operation started at 1:00 a.m. Their operation went until 6:00 a.m. After the operation was over, the 39 Nepali girls had been safely rescued from the hotel.

Swati Maliwal, the chairperson of the DCW, went on Twitter and provided people with the details of the rescue operation.

A joint team of the DCW had gone in to rescue these women late at night, after the DCW had been tipped off about them.

Maliwal also said that the trafficked Nepali girls were going to be sent off to Gulf countries. However, she concluded that the trafficking racket was successfully busted by the DCW.

Furthermore, this is the third operation like this that has occurred since July 25th. July 25th is when the Lok Sabha passed the Trafficking of Persons Bill.

The first of these three operations took place on July 25th. On this date, the DCW rescued 16 women from Delhi’s Munirka area.

The DCW were helped by the police in this operation. These women were, allegedly, also trafficked from Nepal, and were also going to be taken to Gulf countries.

The second of these three operations took place on July 30th. On this day, the Delhi and Varanasi Police rescued 18 women in Vasant Vihar.

16 of these women were from Nepal. They were captured by an international prostitution racket.

With the August 1st rescue operation being the third of its kind in a week, it can be safely said that the Trafficking of Persons Bill is turning out to be very effective in saving the victims of trafficking.
