Shillong, Jun 17 (UNI) An NGO has tied up with the Indian Postal Services (IPS) to fight human trafficking from the Northeast.
The rural areas of the Northeast have been a soft target for traffickers due to ignorance among the victims and inadequate networks of the law enforcing agencies.
The objective of the tie up between the IPS and the NGO was to enlighten people, especially those who live in remote villages of the region, about the danger of human trafficking.
The local NGO has also planned to set up common service centres (CSCs) at post offices as coordinating locations in the N E region, besides pilot offices in Agartala and Aizawl.
Most of the human trafficking during the last few years were reported from the remote villages at Dadgiri in Chirang district on Assam-Bhutan border, Dehekiajuli in Sontipur district of Assam and far-flung areas of West Khasi Hills of Meghalaya, Uklhrul district of Manipur and West Tripura district.
