GIRL TRAFFICKING BY ROHINGYA MUSLIMS
In the month of February this year, human trafficking racket, being operated in Jammu was exposed by Trikuta Nagar SHO Inspector Parvez Sajad. A Rohingya Muslim Noor Gul Ameen, son of Akbar Ali, resident of Malik Market, Narwal, who was gang leader had brought minor girls from Myanmar to sell them off in Jammu. Three girls were also rescued by Jammu police.
Noor Gul Ameen had told police that he brought the girls from Myanmar to India for getting them jobs. After that he sent them to different locations in the country. Jammu has become a big market of human trafficking for Rohingyas, he had revealed to police.
“Minor girls from Myanmar are firstly brought to the capital New Delhi. Afterwards, they are sent to Jammu, Noor informed investigators. The girls are sold at merely Rs 40,000 to Rs 50,000.
