Eight girls were rescued today in a raid conducted by Freedom Firm and local police in Ratlam, Madhya Pradesh. Of the 8 girls rescued, six girls are minor, one borderline and one major. A customer and a brothel keeper were arrested too. The local police were cooperative and arranged two teams to conduct the raid.
Ratlam is the newest town that Freedom Firm is concentrating in to rescue minor girls. In Ratlam, young girls are initiated into prostitution by the Banchhara community where men live off the earnings of the women. Ratlam has an entire village engaged in prostitution.
Pray that in the coming days we will be able to free many more women in Ratlam.
