CHILDLINE Salem rescued 15 boys, all aged below 18, from Bihar at Salem Junction. Children were on their way to Tirupur in search of jobs. The children were from remote villages in Patna; they had been working in a biscuit firm in Bangalore till recently as load men. But since the firm's management did not disperse their wages for the last two months, they got in touch with someone to help them find other odd jobs at Tirupur.

Children boarded a train from Bangalore to Tirupur and when the train made a brief halt at Salem Junction, they alighted to have tea. CHILDLINE team member saw the group of boys, alerted CHILDLINE Salem, who then contacted the police seeking assistance. The Police and the CHILDLINE team together rescued the Children from a potentially harmful labour-related trafficking situation.

After the recue, all the children were brought to the CHILDLINE centre and they were provided with immediate care and protection. They were produced before the Chairperson along with Member's of Child Welfare Committee. The children were shifted to the temporary shelter care home. CHILDLINE is following up to trace the address of children and to get in touch with their families in Patna.
