A vigilant passenger on board an express train recently saved the lives of 26 minor girls who were being trafficked. Adarsh Srivastava was travelling by Muzzafarpur- Bandra Avadh Express when he noticed a big group of minor girls crying in his coach. He sensed that something is wrong when he saw those girls being so uncomfortable.
The man needs our praises as he instantly made a twitter account and did his first tweet to the relevant officials of India bringing the incident to their notice. In his tweet, he shared his train number, his location and wrote that 25 minor girls are crying and feeling insecure in his coach. He tagged Narendra Modi, Piyush Goyal, and Yogi Adityanath.
He wrote, "I am traveling in Avadh express(19040). in s5. in my coach their are 25 girls all are juvenile some of them are crying and all feeling unsecure."
In another tweet, he wrote, "subject to human trafficking )my current station is Hari Nagar my next station is BAGAHA and then Gorakhpur.kindly help them out. Please help."
His tweet grabbed the attention of the authorities who took quick action on it. The girls were rescued by the officials in Varanasi and Lucknow along with the Government Railway Police and Railway Protection Force.
RPF of Nothern Railways replied to the Tweet,
The families of the minor girls were later informed.
The awareness and timely action of Adarsh Srivastava is being applauded by everyone.
Adarsh made the right use of the technology and had put to good use.
Human trafficking is one serious issue in our country and in fact round the globe where minor kids and girls are trafficked and sold off.
We as people need to be vigilant like Adarsh in public places and should bring the issue in the notice of authorities instead of just turning a bling eye.
He is a real hero indeed.
