Calangute police have enhanced their patrolling and began rescue operations to keep the tourist destination clean at the start of the new tourist season.

As per PI Jivba Dalvi this month since 01st October till date they have rescued 03 minor boys aged 07 yrs, 08 yrs and 09 yrs from Baga beach who were found moving alone on the beach.

PI Dalvi informed that mostly migrant children moving on the beaches are vulnerable and may be exploited by criminals or anti-social elements.

All the 03 minor children have been lodged in Apna Ghar for safe custody and protection after obtaining orders from the Child Welfare Committee Member.

Further the Police Inspector has specially requested to the Chairperson of Child Welfare Committee to conduct DNA examination of the persons claiming to be the parents of the children as it will help in tracking the actual biological parents of the children. Further the Police Inspector has also requested that the biological parents of the rescued children shall be verified and the children handed over to them only upon conducting a DNA examination and obtaining the results as this will also help in ruling out any suspicion of child trafficking. The visitors/claimants information stored by your office will be very much necessary if any child trafficking incident comes to light as the persons visiting the rescued children in Apna Ghar will be the main suspects in any trafficking cases related to minor children.

Similar rescue operations were carried out during last year in which 30 minor children were rescued and lodged in Apna Ghar Merces who were subsequently released by Child Welfare Commitee.

Also carrying out extensive patrolling the police have so far this month acted against 30 hawkers who were found moving in various parts of the police station causing nuisance and obstruction to the tourists. All the hawkers were placed under arrest under section 34 of IP Act.

The rescue operations and the action against hawkers will be continued.
