Community demands stronger rescue operations for the missing minor girl

The villages in Sundarbans area of West Bengal State are impoverished. Taking advantage of their poverty, the human traffickers easily find victims to lure away. 

Most of the victims' stories are similar, they get approached by the traffickers with a promise of a bright future. In this video, Community Journalist Krishna Mondal is pursuing a case of a 15 year old minor girl. On August 18th, 2022, she went to her school in the morning to get her marksheet and never came home.

The distraught parents searched locally and got to know that her daughter was befriended by a neighbourhood boy. Then they went to the police and lodged an First Information Report (FIR) against the boy. The police registered the complaint after two attempts by the parents. 

You can see some heart wrenching scenes in this video when the family is remembering their daughter. They told Krishna Mondal about their obedient and studious child, and how she wanted to become a police officer or a doctor in future. She used to be home most of the time and never wasted her time watching TV etc.

The Kultali Police Station keeps assuring the parents that the investigation is still going on. The parents, desperate to locate their daughter, met the top police officers and requested them to hand over the case to the Central Intelligence Department (CID). Now the CID sleuths are at work and still there is no trace.

Krishna Mondal and VV have mobilised and networked with various local organisations to put pressure on the Government agencies to strengthen the search operations. Please share this video, as a solidarity to the aggrieved parents and put pressure on the security agencies.
