The Nepalese women, aged between 17-40, were rescued from various places, including hotels. These women were taken by brokers to different parts of Indian cities on the pretext of providing them with attractive jobs, said Pandey. The women have been handed over to the Central Investigation Bureau of Nepal Police. Annually, tens of thousands of Nepalese women are trafficked to India over fake-job promises.
