With intervention of the Mo Parivar initiative, 14 people who were held captive in Banaras have been rescued.
According to Mo Parivar, Sundargarh district chief Sunita Biswal, five people and their family members were lured by a contractor Bablu Singh to Banaras to work there. But there they were tortured.
Cunningly one Jitu Singh managed to escape from the clutch of the employer and landed at Rourkela on February 5. Then with the help of social worker Prakash Paswan and Biswal, the matter was reported to State Mo Parivar office at Bhubaneswar on February 7.
As the matter came to the notice of Mo Parivar State convenor Arup Patnaik and OSD of CM Gopabandhu Das, ultimately it came to the notice of the CM. Then the district administration and police were instructed to look into the matter. Finally, the Plant Site police moved to Banaras and brought the victims back to Rourkela on Thursday. Biswal said all of them would be rehabilitated as assured by the CM.
