Indian court orders police to rescue boys trafficked to sweet shops

CHENNAI, India – An Indian court on Monday ordered police to rescue 50 boys believed to have been trafficked from Tamil Nadu to sweet shops in western India, giving families hope of being reunited with their missing sons.

Responding to a petition filed by the father of a missing teenager, the high court in southern state of Tamil Nadu asked police to form a special team to rescue the boys and submit a report in three weeks.

“The order gives many hope,” said lawyer David Sunder Singh, who represented the petitioner.

“Though it was the case of one father and one missing boy, the court in a rare instance has taken into account the plight of so many other families whose sons have not returned home.”
