The girl, a class 9 student, had reportedly been taken to Jaipur by a youth from Uttar Pradesh, triggering fears of human trafficking.

An FIR was lodged by the girl’s mother at the Dhubri Sadar Police Station after her daughter failed to return from school. The police were able to locate the girl in Jaipur using technical intelligence.

A team from Dhubri police then travelled to Jaipur, rescued the girl and arrested the youth, Yash Jaiswal, who had allegedly befriended the girl on social media and eloped with her.

The police returned to Dhubri with the girl and the accused on Sunday. It is believed that Jaiswal intended to sell the girl to a trafficking gang in Rajasthan.
