Indian Rescue Mission’s Recent Rescue of a Minor Girl, Helps Indian Police Uncover an International Trafficking Racket
“If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them wanders away, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others on the hills and go out to search for the one that is lost? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he will rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine that didn’t wander away! In the same way, it is not My heavenly Father’s will that even one of these little ones should perish.” –Matt. 18:12-14
(SANGLI, MAHARASTRA)—Efforts made by Indian Rescue Mission (IRM), a Christian organization, helped Indian police track an International Sex Racket being run by Indian pimps with tentacles in major Indian metros and with audacious plans to expand it internationally.

The Police, in their enquiry, found out that the rescued girl was sold for 90,000 Rupees (approx 2000 US $) to a lady pimp and sold again to a brothel keeper in the red light area.
Police Investigations revealed that, the lady Pimp approached the parents of the rescued girl and made a false promise saying that the girl will be offered a good job in a city. Then purchased the girl for 2000 US dollars and finally sold her off to a brothel keeper.
Acting on the information gathered by the lady pimp, the Maharastra State Police conducted a series of raids in Karnataka State, and arrested Pimps which gave a way for the Police to track an International Sex Racket which was hiding behind this.
More raids and arrests are expected in connection with this case.
Speaking on the recent developments, James Varghese, Founder President of Indian Rescue Mission said, “We had been constantly watching and investigating on this lady pimp and then found that the girl was forced into prostitution. And that’s how we planned for the rescue operation.”
“I am happy that this case gave clues to the Police regarding the network of the International Sex Racket,” added Varghese. “Thanks to Maharastra Police.”
