Once a Child Labourer, Ranchi Man Has Rescued 4000 Women & Kids From Trafficking!


The stage was set. And the prey was within reach. A call from an informer confirmed that he had arrived with promises of a better life. Baidnath Kumar smiled in anticipation as he closed the net that he had been weaving for five years around the monster. Within minutes of tipping the police, Kumar saw in satisfaction as Panna Lal Mahto accused of selling 5000 children, mostly tribal girls from Jharkhand, was arrested.

Helping the authorities bringing such fiends to justice is what Kumar has dedicated his life to. For the last 10 odd years, the crusader has been rescuing women and children and so far, he has rescued more than four thousand victims.

Having been physically abused and forced to work for the better part of childhood, Kumar became that helping hand that he was not offered.

Born in Samastipur district of Bihar, Kumar was sent to his uncle’s house in Ranchi, Jharkhand at the age of seven as his parents could barely afford to give him food, let alone an education.

What his parents did not know was that the financial situation was worse in the new home they had entrusted their son with. Though Kumar was enrolled in a government school, he was forced to join a local eatery as a waiter. This was in the early 90s when phones had not made inroads in the country’s villages. His parents remained in the dark about the state of his new life.

For the next decade Kumar studied and switched jobs.

An encounter with a few UPSC students in 2000 helped him to a large extent.

The discussion encouraged him to talk to the other 14 boys working at the same place to raise the issue. Soon, a senior police officer intervened in the matter and while the owner was not given any punishment, the minor boys were told to go home.

When Kumar turned 18, his job at a Xerox centre close to a Civil Court changed the course of life. He met many lawyers and some became friends. He also came across people with bleak eyes waiting for justice that they had lost hope of getting. In the eyes of these people, Kumar saw the same helplessness he had felt as a child.

He solicited legal help from his lawyer-friends, and started an NGO—Dita Seva Sansthan in 2004 with the aim to help underprivileged women and children get an education.

Kumar started out with no connections, money and or even a place to work and the state child welfare department and panchayat committees did not trust him enough to provide financial help.

Overtime, Kumar gained the trust of the authorities and showed them his honest will to help people, especially children caught in the clutches of child labour.

He helped underprivileged women access Self Help Group-Bank Linkage Programmes and simultaneously, he also taught more than 1,000 kids in ‘Bridge Schools’

“When a child drops out of school, government-run informal bridge schools help them complete that year’s academic syllabus instead of repeating the year. The district panchayat of Ranchi had given me a small room to teach the dropouts,” says the 35-year-old.

His foray into saving children from trafficking began when he saw his students dropping out of the class. “I visited their houses and then found out that they had gone missing.

A little more digging opened Kumar up to the horrors of the rampant child trafficking in Jharkhand.

In early 2012, Kumar searched about anti-trafficking laws and started sending mails to Jharkhand’s Anti-Trafficking Unit about minors going missing from the school where he taught.

“Since most of these areas are naxal-affected, parents are often scared to visit police stations. So I gave my number to the villagers. My work was soon noticed by the department and they soon asked me to collaborate in raids,” he says.

One of the collaborations helped Suhani (name changed) reunite with her parents. The girl had been lured by Rajvir (name changed), a man who sold girls to a kingpin in Delhi, in December 2016. A resident of Ramgarh district, Jharkhand, the daughter of daily wage labourers could not comprehend why the man who had promised to marry her, had sold her to someone in Delhi.

Rajvir had sold her for Rs 1 lakh and she was forced into prostitution. She served 18-20 customers per day and was starved if her customer’s feedback was not good. The girl was kept chained when she cried or protested.

Meanwhile, her parents had registered a missing complaint with the police and then contacted Kumar.

On tracing Suhani’s phone, the entire mystery was unravelled.

Baidhnath, says that the social media frenzy has made trafficking business less risky in recent times and in most of the cases it becomes nearly impossible to trace the victim as the sim card and phone is destroyed.

In one year, the trafficking unit managed to register 240 FIRs with Baidhnath’s help. He also prepared a list of 200 placement agencies who could be potential traffickers. The activist was even sent to Delhi to get training from Delhi Police Force on how to conduct raids.

Giving an insight about the process of raids, Kumar says that there are two ways to nab the kingpins.

“One way is to visit railway stations and bus stands from where girls are transported to other states. I go around midnight and inspect the areas. In case of any suspicious movements, I call the police force and anti-trafficking squad and nab them on the spot.”

In the second process, Kumar poses as a customer and joins the WhatsApp groups with a false identity. To gain the trust of kingpins, Kumar often transfers money to their accounts.

Post rescue operations, the victims are either sent back to their parents’ house or rehabilitated by Child Welfare Committees. Girls are often sent to Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya, government-run schools for weaker sections of society.

Baidhnath’s job does not get over after raids. For his personal satisfaction, the braveheart follows up with parents and girls for a few months to prevent them from falling back into the rackets.

Due to his work, Kumar has been threatened innumerable times and he has also seen days where he thought he would die, “My fear of death ended at a very early age and that has been my biggest strength to carry out the kind of work I do. Everyone is going to die one day and I want to exit the world doing some noble deeds. Threats cannot stop me from carrying out my job,” he signs off.

25-year-old man arrested for killing a person in Delhi six years ago


On Tuesday, a 25-year-old man was arrested from Bihar for allegedly killing a person in the national capital nearly six years ago. The accused, identified as Rahees Manjhi is a resident of Gaya in Bihar. The police had announced a reward of Rs 25,000 on information leading to his arrest.

According to a senior police officer, Rajesh was killed in the Mundka area on October 14, 2013. During the investigation, accused Upender and his relative Sajan Manjhi were arrested. Upender said that he, along with his nephew Rahees Manjhi and relative Sajan Manjhi, had killed Rajesh with a sharp-edged weapon after an altercation over liquor.

Police got a tip-off that Rahees had been hiding in Bihar. “Thereafter, a police team was sent to Gaya where they arrested Rahees from a jungle of Piyar village after a brief chase,” said Ram Gopal Naik, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime).

In another incident, three teenagers were arrested by Delhi Police for allegedly killing a 15-year-old boy for a smartphone. A missing report of a 15-year-old boy was registered on July 13, at Moti Nagar police station. The investigation to find the missing teenager was initiated.

In the meantime, the police received information about a boy’s body in an abandoned house in Delhi’s Basai Darapur area. After the police reached the spot along with the victim’s cousin, it was found to be the missing boy’s body.

Delhi Commissioner of Police (DCP) West, Monika Bhardawaj said in a statement, “The police team gathered the vital clues with the help of technical surveillance and CCTV footages installed in the locality. On the basis of discreet enquiries, three Children in Conflict with Law (CCLs) were apprehended.” She also added that during the interrogation all three of them confessed the crime.

Smoking in Bengaluru-Ranchi flight gets Jharkhand man deplaned


A Jharkhand resident has been arrested and faces up to 3 months jail or Rs one lakh fine for allegedly smoking inside the lavatory of a Ranchi bound flight. Deepak Kumar Sharma, a resident of Hazaribagh in Jharkhand was deplaned from an IndiGo airlines flight (6E 485) and handed over to the police on Friday.

A smoke alarm inside the aircraft went off, blowing the lid of Sharma’s illegal conduct, when the Airbus 320 aircraft enroute Ranchi landed at Patna around 2.30 pm, police said.

The passenger was first handed over to the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), tasked with airport security, before he was handed over to the airport police station that charged him with smoking inside the aircraft, said Garima Mallik, Senior Superintendent of Police, Patna.

The Police were considering if Sharma had to be charged under the non-bailable section of the relevant act, SHO of airport police station, Jaishankar Prasad said seniors were being consulted on the matter while Patna SSP said non-bailable section had not been invoked so far.

The incident raises questions over the airport security which shouldn’t have allowed the accused to pass through with a matchbox or a cigarette lighter.

According to airport sources, the accused could end up paying a penalty of up to Rs 1 lakh or spend up to three months in jail for risking security inside aircraft.

Section 25 of the Aircraft Act states, “The owner or the operator and the pilot-in-command of every aircraft registered in India, shall exhibit or cause to be exhibited in prominent place(s) in the aircraft, notice(s) stating where and to what extent smoking is prohibited or permitted therein. No person shall smoke: (a) in any part of an aircraft or in its vicinity, in which a notice is displayed indicating that smoking is prohibited. (b) Anywhere in an aircraft during take-off, landing or refuelling or during a period in which a notice is temporarily displayed indicating that smoking is prohibited.”

Almost 40 Years On, Man Declared Juvenile at Time of Murder, Spared Life Term


New Delhi: If there has to be a perfect example of how the wheels of justice turn slowly but grind exceedingly fine, this is it. Almost four decades on, a man has been spared life behind bars since he was six months short of 18 at the time of committing a murder.

Incarcerated for a period of more than 10 years since 1980, Banaras Singh has finally earned his freedom with the Supreme Court concluding that he was 17 years and 6 months old when he committed the murder.

A bench headed by Justice NV Ramana held that Singh is entitled to the benefit of the juvenile justice law, and since he has already served a long time in jail, he should be released immediately instead of being sent back to a juvenile court again.

The incident occurred in August 1980 when Singh had checked in a hotel room with his cousin in Bihar’s Gaya. Later, the hotel staff found the cousin’s dead body inside the room while Singh had left. Singh was arrested immediately. In 1988, a trial court in Gaya convicted him of the murder charge and sentenced him to life imprisonment.

In 1998, the Patna High Court dismissed Singh’s appeal and affirmed his conviction as well as life term.

Singh filed an appeal in the Supreme Court in 2009, and claimed that he was juvenile at the time of commission of the crime. His petition sought benefit of the Bihar Child Act, which was subsequently amended as per the Juvenile Justice Act. The matter remained pending for a decade in the top court, which in December last year sought a report from the jurisdictional trial court.

Based on Singh’s matriculation certificate and other records, the trial judge sent a report to the Supreme Court, confirming that Singh was indeed a minor and six months short of 18 when the offence took place. “Taking into consideration the said fact and the law prevailing as on today, we are of the considered view that the appellant is entitled to the benefit of juvenility,” thus held the apex court.

The bench took into account that Singh has already undergone more than 10 years of sentence. “In view of that, there is no need to again sending the matter for determination under the provisions of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000 by the Juvenile Justice Board. We dispose of the appeal accordingly and direct that the appellant be released forthwith, if he is not required in any other case,” it ordered.
