As many as five child labourers were rescued from a bakery at Gandhipuram on Tuesday, during a sudden raid conducted by the officials of National Child Labour Project and other departments.

NCLP Project Director D V Vijayakumar said following orders from Collector M Karunagaran raids were conducted to check if children were employed in bakery units and construction sites. During the raid, five children under the age of 14, who were found working in various bakeries and construction sites, were rescued, he said

“Among the rescued children, two were from Ramanathapuram district, two from Dindigul and one from Rajasthan. All were produced before the child welfare committee in the district,” he said.

The children were sent to the GH for medical examination. Action will be taken against the employers after receiving the medical reports, said Vijayakumar and added that steps would be taken to admit the rescued children in schools.
