14 Child Labourers Rescued from Firework Factory

Fourteen innocent children in the age group of nine to thirteen years were found being exploited by an owner of a fireworks factory in Sivakasi, Tamil Nadu. They were illegally being made to work in highly hazardous conditions, in exchange for food and shelter.
These kids, eight boys and six girls, were victims of human trafficking and were brought in from other states to avoid detection. They belonged to poor families whose parents had earlier sold them as bonded labourers. These facts came to light after a police raid on the factory premises in wee hours of 10th December. The proprietor of the firm was arrested along with two human traffickers who were present inside the factory. The inspector who led the raid commented, “For the past two weeks, we were collecting evidence against the proprietor and the human traffickers. With enough evidence, we successfully conducted the raid yesterday.”
