15 juveniles rescued from New Delhi Railway Station
Fifteen juveniles have been rescued from the New Delhi Railway Station here in a joint drive by the Delhi Police and NGO Sathi.

The non-governmental organisation had approached the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of Crime Branch to come to the rescue of the deprived children, the police said in a statement.

Sathi is engaged in rescue and rehabilitation of children found at railway stations and platforms across the national capital.

"A ten-day drive was launched on September 1 at the New Delhi Railway Station for rescuing such children. Fifteen such juveniles were recovered," the statement said.

The rescued children went through counselling by the NGO and thereafter, the juveniles expressed a desire to return to normal life and shun the world of crime, it said.

The children were united with their parents yesterday.

"The juveniles, aged between 10 to 16 years, belonged to poor family background. They are school dropouts who had fled from their homes in the hope of earning money," said a senior police officer.
