An anti-trafficking crusader nun in Chhattisgarh has done it again.
She has rescued two more teenage girls from the central Indian state who were sold to brothels in Pune and Goa.
The girls, aged 19 and 16, are siblings of a Bhil tribal family in the Kerasa village of Surguja district.
Traffickers exploit the tribe’s acute poverty, bemoans Franciscan Missionaries of Mary Sister Annie Jesus Mary, who helped rescue the girls.
The nun is the director of Jeevan Jharna Vikas Sanstha (JJVS, foundation for the progress of life stream) at Kansabel in Chhattisgarh.
