On 1st May, at least 23 girls hailing from Nepal were rescued by Mizoram police, who were being allegedly trafficked for flesh trade, a senior police officer said.

According to sources, Inspector General of Police (Intelligence and Law and Order), Mizoram, LH  Shanliana said that the 23 girls hailing from Nepal were victims of human trafficking. They were rescued from Aizawl and Champhai near Myanmar border last week.

He said that a person identified as Lal Bahadur, a non-Mizoram resident is  suspected to be involved in trafficking the girls, has been arrested by police.

According to the police officer, the girls in their teens were trafficked from Nepal and were suspected to be on their way to South-East Asian countries via Mizoram for forced prostitution. All the victims have been sent to protective homes, the police officer added. LH Shanliana also said that investigation is on to find out if there is any link between the locals and international traffickers.
