The women and the minor, all belonging to the Kanjar nomadic community, were produced before a last night which directed that they be sent to a women's shelter home.



The six women were also sent for a medical examination to determine their age as some of them appeared to be underage, said Kaniz Fatima, Circle In-charge (CI), Anti Human Trafficking Cell, Bundi.

The sudden raid was carried out yesterday by police in Ramnagar Kanjar colony about 10 km from the city, after receiving inputs about minor girls in the area, she said.

"If some other rescued women are confirmed underage in the medical tests, further cases would be lodged accordingly. Efforts would be made to bring the rescued women under some state government run welfare schemes," the official said.
