New Delhi: Days after a Nepalese national, rescued by the Yangon anti-trafficking task force of Myanmar, was repatriated to Nepal, Union women and child development minister Maneka Gandhi has come forward to say that the victims of trafficking will be sent back to their country.

In a tweet posted on February 14, Gandhi mentioned that the ministry of external affairs has already given permission to safely repatriate 147 girls and 32 boys to their country. The 179 Nepalese victims of trafficking are currently taking shelter at Manipur’s Ujjawala shelter homes and now await their repatriation.

The Nepalese youths were being allegedly sent to Dubai via Myanmar when they were rescued in Imphal, Manipur. The minister had ensured that the detained youths were kept in safe houses. Rehabilitation programmes were also initiated for them by her ministry.
