Child labourers freed from units in Jaipur

Police liberated around 100 children employed as child labourers in different units in the state capital of Jaipur, Police Commissioner BL Soni said. These children brought from different places in Bihar were engaged in works in six embroidery factories in areas under the Sadar police station here, Mr Soni said. The freed children--many of them aging 8 to 10 years or so--were later shifted to the Bal Griha shelter home being run here by Jaipur Municipal Corporation, he said. The owners of the six units--who also hail from Bihar--were arrested, the Commissioner added.
