DGP orders stern action against human trafficking, begging

Saturday, 25 May 2024 | PNS | Lucknow

Strict action will be taken against the anti-social elements running human trafficking and begging rackets in the state.

Director General of Police Prashant Kumar, in a circular on Friday, has instructed police officials to identify such criminal elements and take stern action against them.

In the instructions issued to the subordinates in this regard, the DGP said that attempts were often made to deploy children to clean the glass of vehicles and sell small items at the intersections. He said in many cases, it had come to light that these children were kidnapped in an organised manner and put to work like begging.

“Taking incidents like human trafficking and kidnapping of children seriously, disclosure, arrest and recovery should be made. Interrogation reports should be prepared under the leadership of gazetted officers, so that information can be obtained about the methods of such incidents, money trail, gangs etc. Hot spots of such incidents should be identified and CCTVs should be installed,” the instructions say.

The DGP said that the pattern of incidents that happened in the last 10 years should be analysed. He said to stop child begging, the public should also be made aware along with taking cooperation from District Child Protection Unit, Child Line, NGOs, voluntary organisations etc. He said authorised voluntary organisations and individuals doing excellent work in preventing begging should be honoured.
