GUWAHATI, Aug 2 - The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) today questioned the veracity of the assertion made by the Rashtra Sevika Samiti, affiliated to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha (RSS), on the issue of taking 31 girls from the State to Gujarat and Punjab on the plea of providing better education.

The issue came to light with a news report published in an English weekly of the country. The Samiti has denied any ulterior motive in sending these girls to Gujarat and Punjab and claimed they were sent to these States with the consent of their parents.

But the APCC today questioned as to why official correspondence was made by the Assam State Commission for Protection of Child Rights to the ADGP, CID of the State on the issue, requesting steps to rescue the girls from Gujarat and Patiala on June 16, 2015. A copy of this correspondence was marked to the Member Secretary, National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, too, said the APCC in a statement signed by Assam Congress Legislature Party (ACLP) leader Debabrata Saikia and senior APCC spokespersons Bobbeeta Sarma and Apurba Kumar Bhattacharjee.

The Child Protection Society of the State also made correspondence to the Child Welfare Committee, Kokrajhar, for �restoration of the children from Delhi to Assam� on June 18, 2015. The Child Welfare Committee, Kokrajhar, also made communication with the Child Welfare Committee, Surendranagar on �Restoration of Children from Assam presently staying at Saraswati Mandir at Halvad (district Surendranagar, Gujarat)� on June 22, 2015.

The representatives of Childline, Patiala and Childline, Delhi, also made correspondence for urgent intervention and investigation into the alleged trafficking of the girls.

The attention of the National Commission for Child Rights (NCPC) was drawn to the matter. The Assam Commission for Protection of Child Rights chairperson also submitted a report to the NCPC chairperson on July 15, 2016, on the issue, said the APCC. It also demanded urgent steps to bring back the minor girls to the State at the earliest.
