2023 Dec 24, 12:18,

 A total of 260 individuals believed to be at risk of trafficking were rescued from the Birgunj transit point along the Nepal-India border in Parsa in one year.

Among them, 257 were women and girls while three were male children. The rescues were possible due to the efforts of Maiti Nepal.

The majority of those rescued hail from Parsa, Sarlahi, Dhanusha, and Mahottari districts in Madhesh Province and Jhapa in Koshi Province.

Maiti Nepal, Ashish Social Service Nepal, Aafanta Nepal, Tiny Hand Nepal, and Nepal Police make surveillance against possible human trafficking via Birgunj along the Nepal-India border. However, locals have demanded that security people increase surveillance at the Bhishwa and Bhangaha points as well.
