'Ebar Shabor' cop interacts with distressed children in CINI

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Donning the special branch detective's cloak as portrayed in his upcoming film 'Ebar Shabor', actor Saswata Chatterjee interacted with trafficked and underprivileged children and pledged to chip in for their uplift as an icon.

Saswata, who was introduced to six kids of distressed background at the Child in Need Institute (CINI), pointed out the need for proper rehabilitation of the trafficked children after rescue work.

"The follow-up surveillance and sensitisation on part of the family and neighbours are crucial. The police should also be sensitised," Sasawata, a.K.A Shabar Dasgupta busting a crime against woman in the film, said.

The archetypal Ajit in 'Byomkesh Phire Elo' was visibly moved while mingling with six children - aged between six to 14 years - at the global NGO's city shelter.

The 'Ebar Shabor' team, comprising Saswata and director-actor Arindam Sil and producer Madhumita Pyne, unveiled the CINI Calendar 2015 dedicated to the little children who have been victims of cross-border trafficking.

"To laud their efforts of courage, the CINI Calendar 2015 features paintings that have been done by children who are survivors of trafficking. We are proud to be part of the initiative," Saswata said.
