KATHMANDU: Employees serving at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu are accused of involving in trafficking innocent Nepali sisters to Indian brothel.
Saru Basnet, who managed to arrive Kathmandu on May 23 escaping the misfortune of being sold off for brothel in India, made this allegation while speaking at a press conference organised by Help Nepali Mission on Monday.
Victim Basnet demanded stern action against broker Bharat Neupane and Birendra Khanal, who cheated her by assuring monthly income of Rs. 40,000 in Jordan.
She escaped from the clutches of brokers by getting support from Nepali Help Mission.
‘I screamed for help after knowing that I was being sold off to another broker in India, Salim Miya, at Rs. 250,000. Workers at nearby shop made a phone call to inform the Mission for my rescue’, she recalled the painstaking moments.
There has been the involvement of airport staffer in trafficking Nepali sisters outside, she alleged, adding the airport staffer asking me for showing passport in the beginning allowed us to go ahead after the brokers provided him with money wrapped in a plastic bag.
Another victim Ram Maya Gurung, a local of Dhadfing, said she also managed to run away from the brokers after knowing that she is being sold off to India at Rs. 60,000 in the pretext of sending to Kuwait for employment.
