NEW DELHI: India yesterday handed over to Bangladesh a 17-year-old girl who was pushed into prostituti­on six months ago by a gang involved in illegal human traffickin­g between the two countries.

The girl, whose name was withheld, was lured by two members of the human traffickin­g gang in Bangladesh on the pretext of providing her with a job in a beauty parlour in India.

Ravi Kant, commanding officer of 99 Battalion BSF, said the BSF was taking strict steps to prevent infiltrati­on and human traffickin­g along the India-Bangladesh border.
