DERGAON, June 19 - The Dhansiri Subdivisional police administration in Golaghat district rescued 19 �bonded� labourers from a house at Baruagaon under Ghiladhari police station (PS) in the district on Tuesday evening.

Following the FIR lodged in Barpathar PS in Golaghat district regarding the missing of Simanta Hazarika, the police team led by the subdivisional police officer (SDPO) of Dhansiri, Pranjal Bora along with the police officials from Barpathar and Ghiladhari PS started an operation, in which a total of 19 labourers, including a woman, were found to have been held by the landlord Ananda Bora at his Baruagaon residence. A case has been registered at Ghiladhari PS in this connection and Maina Bora, the son of Ananda Bora, was picked up for interrogation.
