Trafficking Resource Centre at New Delhi in offing
Wednesday, 24 June 2015 | Sumedha Chaudhury | Ranchi | in Ranchi
Children and Young Girls of the State trafficked to various parts of the nation can finally be traced at the earliest from the nation Capital. The Social Welfare Department has initiated a meeting with officers of West Bengal (WB), Uttar Pradesh Government and Delhi Administration as well as with NGO partners for setting a Trafficking Resource Centre at New Delhi on Tuesday.
Ranchi District Child Protection Officer (DCPO) Kala Nath has been appointed as the Nodal Officer of the Centre. “The meeting was called for two agendas. Firstly, to appoint a Nodal Officer for the upcoming Trafficking Resource Centre. It will help officials of various states and NGO representatives to get in direct touch with a concerned officer of Jharkhand whenever a child or woman of the state is rescued from other states like Haryana, UP or WB.
Secondly, it was held to strengthen the inter-state coordination for rescuing trafficking victims of Jharkhand,” NGO Shakti Vahini president Ravi Kant, also an Advocate of Supreme Court told The Pioneer over a telephonic conversation from New Delhi.The meeting was an introductory session attended by Social Welfare Principal Secretary Mridula Sinha, Jharkhand Bhawan Resident Commissioner Uday Pratap Singh, Joint Secretary to the Government of West Bengal Sarmistha Das, Delhi Commission for Women member Rupinder Kaur, Delhi Legal Services Authority member, Delhi Police officers, Child Welfare Committee members, Ministry of Home officer, Special Home Secretary of Uttar Pradesh officer and representatives from NGOs BKS, Shakti Vahini and Save the Children.
“The centre once established will help all the stakeholders of the Jharkhand government to accommodate the rescued trafficked individuals of the state from Haryana, New Delhi-NCR regions and Uttar Pradesh safely where the maximum cases of trafficking are reported,” said Ravi Kant.
Other Sources in New Delhi maintained several discussions related to the matter like promoting helpline number for the victims and steps to tackle the trafficking issue through a unified approach were done.
Save the Children State Programme Manager Mahadev Hansda informed indentifying a location for constructing the center is in process. “The Centre will work in two modes apart from trafficking. It will keep in regular touch with children aged below 18 years working in homes and organizations at New Delhi. In case, a child of Jharkhand is harassed by their owners in home or other places, immediate action will be taken against them. Moreover, rescued girls will be given vocational training in the centre,” he said.
Similar meeting of Jharkhand government officials is scheduled with Ghaziabad, Nodia and Haryana representatives in July. Sources informed that Chief Minister Raghubar Das is keen to begin the Resource Centre and had discussed on it with state officers posted in New Delhi during his recent visit to the national Capital.
