NEW DELHI, March 2 - A 27-year-old woman, allegedly involved in human trafficking, has been arrested for luring innocent girls from rural areas of the Northeast on the pretext of providing jobs here, police said today.

Keballina M Sangma alias Kevi Manda was arrested from Manali, Himachal Pradesh, on February 21, following a long chase by the team that traversed Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram and Himachal Pradesh, said Ravindra Yadav, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime). A reward of Rs 50,000 had been declared for her arrest, he said.

The woman is suspected to be member of a gang that is involved in trafficking of girls for sexual exploitation. They targeted girls who were living separately from their parents and needed money to sustain themselves, he said.

Last year on July 25, a girl belonging to a rural area in Meghalaya was brought to Guwahati from her village by one Radhika Marak alias Chesama on the pretext of arranging a lucrative job for her.

The girl had lost her mother and her father had married another woman, thereby deserting his daughter, said another officer. � PTI
