New Delhi: Delhi Crime Branch extends its success in restoring and linking a dozen children back to their basic homes/shelters. Operation MILAP is a scheme which aims to re-unite missing children with their near and dear ones. The initiative has been the brain-child of Anti Human Trafficking Unit (AHTU) of Delhi Police Crime Branch.
The Delhi police team conducts checking drives for data monitoring connected with all Child-homes in the Capital city of Delhi. During this drive, they browse through all records available in these shelter homes and cross-check it with the datasheet that Crime branch has compiled for missing/kidnapped children over a period of time.
Documentation work has been tightened for MILAP data collection and textual and photographic inputs collected from shelter homes, railway platforms, bus terminals, religious places are all consolidated before the team begins the drive.
During the initiative, the Human Trafficking unit led by Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Dinesh Kumar Gupta and his teammates shortlisted the children, sought their confidence, and persuaded them into detailing their whereabouts. On collection of such vital clues, the parents and guardians of such stranded children were contacted, verification carried out and the 13 children got restored or re-linked to their families.
A total of 155 children have been restored back thus.
