Sharp rise in human trafficking to Malaysia

The Indian embassy in Malaysia has, in a message to the state police, conveyed its concern over the growing menace of human traffick-ing to Malaysia from this part of Bihar.

Kishanganj SP Ranjit Kumar Mishra, confirming the message from the Indian embassy, said a probe conducted after four boys escaped from Ma-laysia and landed at Kishanganj on March 23 has disclosed that the racket had assumed gigantic proportions with its wide network spread over to Chennai and Siliguri.

An FIR lodged by escapee Jehangir Alam with the Kochadhaman police station states the traffickers modus operandi. Zila parishad member and Congress leader Lalit Kumar, his brother Luxman, their two cohorts Zabul and Anuj and Pak agent Rana have been charged with human trafficking. Indian traffickers are in cahoots with Pakistan agents in Malaysia who take care of the racket in Malaysia. An NGO is also under scanner, police said.

The FIR has been lodged under sections 467, 468, 471, 420, 120(B) IPC, among others, and 12/16 of Bandhuva Majdoor Unmoolan Act, according to SDPO PK Das.

Alam told TOI, adding inducing fear of arrest by police and subsequent jail term, they made us obey their orders.
