The prompt and timely action taken by the Indian Rescue Mission (IRM) a Christian social organization, Mumbai Police arrested a brothel owner and the Manager and rescued six girls from their clutches on December 6, 2010 at Mumbai in Maharastra State, India.
The raid was conducted on a brothel in the Simplex Building in the Grand Road area.
The Indian Rescue Mission had been investigating the case for five days during which they kept watch on the brothel where they suspected the girls were trapped.
So on December 6, 2010 at about 20.30 pm, the Indian Rescue Mission team met with Additional Commissioner of Police, Zone II of Mumbai and gave information about three minor girls and then the urgent need to rescue them.
Acting on this information, and after receiving instructions from Additional Commissioner of Police, and also the police officer from D.B Marg Police Station, the team swung into action and raided the brothel, during which they detained the brothel keeper and manager and rescued six girls just before midnight.
The brothel owner, manager and the rescued girls were then taken to the local police station and a complaint was registered against the perpetrators. The girls were then produced before the court and thereafter for medical examination.
Speaking about the rescue operation, Mr. James Varghese, founder and president of the Indian Rescue Mission, said, “Soon after the information was given to the police, the whole Grand Road area where this brothel was located was tipped off was somehow alerted to the possible raid, so hundreds of girls were sent out to different locations and were hidden.”
Varghese, who is also a special correspondent in India for the ASSIST News Service, added even added “Even in spite of the big tip off, we found the targeted victim girls in the brothel and successfully rescued the them.
He said about a Bible verse that pounded his heart after the successful rescue was, “If God be for us, who can be against us.”
It’s awful what many of these girls are experiencing here in the brothels. We rescue these little ones, through your help and support. Wherever, you are, your prayers can help us rescue these girls before they are abused by hundreds of customers and sold to someone else.
