With the coordination of various organizations, Nepal Police rescued two dozens of Nepali women in the past six months from different transit points in Bardiya district along the open Nepal-India border.
“Traffickers were taking women to India on the pretext of heading to third country destination either for medical treatment or shopping,” said Bishnu Bahadur Thapa, Bardiya Chief District Officer
According to CDO Thapa, four transit points in Bardiya have been found sensitive from the security perspective for women.
The traffickers use the areas along the open border with India where there is no presence of security personnel as a trafficking route. They do not use the areas where security personnel are present,” said Thapa.
Jamuni Karnalipur, Gulariya, Ganeshpur and Dhanaura are the most sensitive transit points as listed by organizations working to prevent the women trafficking.
