35 children rescued after hotel raids


9 January 2011

Lucknow: At least 35 children were rescued after a raid was conducted by the department of labour, along with a city-based NGO. The raid was conducted on various restaurants and food kiosks in Lucknow.

The drive was conducted with an aim to rescue children working as labourers in restaurants and food joints in different parts of the city. Some of the areas in which the department conducted the surprise raids, included Vikas Nagar, Aliganj and Rajajipuram.

The government initiated a drive against child labour from December 29, following which, it issued a directive to all against employing minors. The raids, however, revealed that child labour is still prevalent in many parts of the city. According to officials, legal notices were issued to all restaurants, where children were found working.
