New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS) Fifteen children from different parts of the country who were living in the national capital’s shelter homes have been reunited with their families, Delhi Police said on Saturday.
“Fifteen children, aged between 12 and 16 years, were united recently with their families,” Joint Commissioner of Police Ravindra Yadav said.
“The children belong to Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Punjab and different places in Delhi,” Yadav said.
Delhi Police have till date reunited 170 children with their families under “Operation Milap”, a special drive launched in 2014 by their Anti-Human Trafficking Unit to unite missing children with their families.
