udaipur: 30 Child Labourers Rescued From Udaipur, Minor Found Pregnant | Jaipur News

Jaipur: A 16-year-old girl, who was rescued from child labour in Udaipur two days back (April 21), has tested positive for pregnancy in a test conducted by pregnancy test kit.
Rajasthan State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (RSCPCR) with the help of child welfare committee, Udaipur, and Child Line along with Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation rescued 30 children, including 28 boys and two girls from factories and hotels on April 21.
In this connection, they have filed 12 FIRs against 14 accused who employed child labour in Udaipur.
During counselling and medical test, the officials found that one of the two girls rescued has tested positive for pregnancy. “Since the test was done by pregnancy test kit, we are getting a confirmatory test done. We are investigating the matter further. During counselling, she told us that she had come to Udaipur from a tribal area near Udaipur along with a man,” said Shailendra Pandya, member, RSCPCR.
The rescued girl also told the officials that her father and mother have died. RSCPCR officials are now searching for her relatives to find out more about her which can aid her rehabilitation.
RSCPCR is ensuring that the rescued children are counselled so that they may reveal if they were physically or sexually abused.
“We are not only rescuing children from child labour but also ensuring that employers are booked under appropriate sections of IPC and JJ Act. FIRs have been lodged under sections 75 and 79 of the Juvenile Justice Act against 14 employers in this connection,” said Pandya.
The children were rescued from various hostels, restaurants, brick kilns and shops of Udaipur.
Among the 30 children rescued, six belong to Uttar Pradesh and two are from Bihar. They have been shifted to childcare home.
