Shanu was trafficked from Kolkata and sold to a brothel in Pune. Our team rescued her last July in Pune. Our social worker stayed connected with Shanu after she was restored back to her family in Kolkata. Calling her often to make sure Shanu was safe, our social worker tried to persuade her to testify against the brothel keeper.

At first, she refused to testify in court since her family was unaware of her past.Eventually she agreed, hoping that the brothel keeper would be held accountable for her crimes. 

She travelled 1200 miles from Kolkata to Pune and delivered a strong testimony against her ex-brothel keeper. We hope with Shanu for a conviction in the near future.
