NEW DELHI: Lieu­tenant Gov­er­nor Anil Bai­jal di­rected the Delhi Po­lice to strengthen the Anti Hu­man Traf­fick­ing Unit (AHTU) in­fra­struc­ture and re­sources us­ing lat­est tech­nol­ogy. On Thurs­day, Bai­jal chaired the Law and Or­der meet­ing on An­ti­hu­man Traf­fick­ing Unit and Miss­ing Chil­dren.

Spe­cial Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice (Crime) in­formed the LG about var­i­ous ini­tia­tives un­der­taken to com­bat hu­man traf­fick­ing in the Cap­i­tal.

These in­clude iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of af­fected ar­eas and per­sons in­volved in traf­fick­ing; vig­or­ous and con­certed ac­tion against traf­fick­ers; pe­ri­odic meet­ings held by nodal of­fi­cers to re­view and mon­i­tor ef­forts taken for pre­vent­ing and com­bat­ing traf­fick­ing; li­ai­son with var­i­ous de­part­ments and NGOS for im­me­di­ate re­lief, coun­sel­ing, med­i­cal help, longterm re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion etc.

A state­ment from the LG House noted, “The LG was also briefed about the ini­tia­tives against hu­man traf­fick­ing, such as im­part­ing train­ing to po­lice per­son­nel at var­i­ous lev­els to deal with the crime of Hu­man Traf­fick­ing in Po­lice Train­ing Col­lege (PTC) and dis­trict level; ex­change of in­for­ma­tion in the in­ter­state crime co­or­di­na­tion meet­ings; po­lice staff posted at rail­way sta­tions/ bus ter­mi­nals sen­si­tised reg­u­larly; a cen­tralised Miss­ing Per­son Squad func­tion­ing at PS Kot­wali for en­tire Delhi; Dis­trict Miss­ing Per­son Unit (DMPU) cre­ated in each dis­trict in ad­di­tion to Cen­tral Miss­ing Per­son Squad.

The LG told Delhi Po­lice that the Crime Branch and lo­cal po­lice should de­velop in­tel­li­gence and take ac­tion against or­gan­ised gangs that force chil­dren or adults into beg­ging, and ex­em­plary and de­ter­rent ac­tion must be taken against them. Delhi Po­lice should also visit fam­i­lies of chil­dren in­cluded in ‘Pe­hchaan Scheme’ and ‘Op­er­a­tion Mi­lap’ to de­velop a sense of se­cu­rity among the par­ents, he added.

He also told po­lice that the sta­tis­tics of un­traced chil­dren should be an­a­lysed and cases in which chil­dren are still un­traced should be thor­oughly in­ves­ti­gated.
