GAYA:  Altogether 102 child labourers rescued from Jaipur (Rajasthan) were brought today to Gaya in Bihar.           

The kids were working in cottage and small scale industries in Jaipur and were rescued in December last year.       

Confirming their arrival, Gaya District Magistrate Sanjay Agrawal said a seven-member team was sent to bring the rescued children after officials in Rajasthan informed about them.         

"The children were working as labourers in bangle and handicraft industries. 53 of them are from Gaya, 13 from Samastipur, two from Muzaffarpur and the rest are from Banka, Nawada, Katihar, Madhubani, Sitamarhi, Darbhanga, Khagaria and Aurangabad districts," Agrawal said adding, they belong to poor families and were trafficked to the Pink City by middlemen and labour contractors with promises of money and better living.    

The District Magistrate said the rescued children have been handed over to an NGO, Rescue Junction and efforts were being made to locate their addresses and reunite them with their families.
