300 kids sold to US buyers at Rs 45 lakh each; king held
MUMBAI: The Mumbai police arrested the king of an international child trafficking racket that allegedly sent at least 300 children from India to the US. Rajubhai Gamlew aka Rajubhai, a Gujarat resi nt, started the racket in 2007 and would charge Rs 45 lakh for each child from his US-based clients. The fate of the trafficked children is not yet clear. Some members of the racket were arrested in March.
孟买: 孟买警方逮捕了一个国际贩卖儿童团伙的头目，据称该团伙将至少将300名印度儿童送往美国。Rajubhai Gamlew aka Rajubhai，一位古吉拉特邦居民，自2007年开始从事这项非法勾当，每个儿童向美国客户收取450万卢比的费用。目前尚不清楚被贩卖儿童的命运。该团伙的一些成员在3月份被捕。
The children, aged 11-16, came from poor families, usually in Gujarat. “Finding it difficult to take care of them, their parents or guardians would sell them,” said a police officer. Police said after receiving an order from clients in the US, Gamlew, 50, would instruct his gang to find a poor family, usually in Gujarat, willing to sell a child. They would also find families willing to rent out their children’s passports. A passport with a picture with some resemblance to the child would then be sed.
The gang would then pay a carrier to take the child to the US. Before that, makeup would be applied on the child for a stronger resemblance with the picture on the passport. After the carrier returned from the US, the passport would be returned to the original holder. It is unclear how the passport would be stamped by immigration without its bearer’s presence, the police said.
The racket was busted in March when actor Preeti Sood received a call from a friend that two minors were being applied makeup at a Versova salon. “I went there on a suspicion that the girls were being readied for brothels. But once there, I realised that the racket was bigger than I thought,” she told TOI on Wednesday. She said she found three men instructing the staff on how to apply makeup on two minors.
这项非法勾当是在3月份被发现的。今年3月，演员Preeti Sood接到一个朋友的电话，说两个未成年人正在Versova沙龙化妆。星期三，Preeti Sood告诉印度时报：“我怀疑那些姑娘们是要被送去妓院的，所有便过去那儿看看。但一到那里，我就意识事情比我想象的要更严重。我发现有三个男人在那指导工作人员如何给两个未成年人化妆。”
“When I asked, the men cmed they were sending the children to their parents in the US. I asked them to accompany me to the police station, but they refused. I managed to stop two of the men and called the police. Meanwhile, the third escaped with the girls,” Sood said. Sood got four men arrested by the police, including a retired sub-inspector’s son.
The four are Amir Khan (26; the policeman’s son), Tajuddin Khan (48), Afzal Shaikh (35) and Rizwan Chotani (39). Gamlew was tracked with the help of a WhatsApp number he used to communicate with his accomplices. “Gamlew has been arrested before. In 2007, he was caught in Mumbai for passport forgery. We were led to his latest racket because of the March arrests,” said DCP (Zone IX) Paramjit Singh Dahiya.
这4人分别是：Amir Khan(26岁;警察的儿子)，Tajuddin Khan(48岁)，Afzal Shaikh(35岁)和Rizwan Chotani(39岁)。警方通过Gamlew与同伙沟通的WhatsApp号码，追踪到了Gamlew。警察总长Paramjit Singh Dahiya称：“Gamlew以前也被逮捕过。2007年，他因伪造护照在孟买被捕。3月的逮捕行动，让我们发现了这项非法勾当”。
The accused have been booked under the IPC’s sections 34 (common intention) and 373 (buying minor for purposes of prostitution). Gamlew will be in police custody till August 18. His four cronies are in judicial custody.
Hang him and his associates to death.
Such a big racket and police are innocent is impossible.
Unless we have law which will dealt with all criminals harshly and with no provision of bail their can hardly be any improvement in crime rate.
Mus ms are a liability to the nation.
From cow to children, these people traffic everything, is this there Kuran & Mahds teaching
Anything and everything is for sale these days. Right price is needed. That''s all.
There are hundreds of such rackets in India many of whichare running under state/central go nment/police prection. First these people conduct medical ca ps in slums and poor areas from where they find children with rare blood types (there are hundreds of blood groups, A,AB,B,O are just the most common ones). Then organs of these children are harvested for rich people. Finally the bodies are discarded by burning or dissolving in acid. No body, no crime and no way to track.
Gamlew has nothing to worry about; he''ll be produced in an Indian court where the judge will first work on giving him bail.
Obviously, gujarathis are the worst cunning and devious law breakers. Many of them are being exposed now.
I appreciate Preeti Sood for her bold and responsible act. Investigation should also cover how and why police did not get a wind of such large scale racket and take action on any colluders.
Hindu population: 84%, crime: 34%
Mus m population: 14%, crime: 60%
Good catch and good work by the cops and the actor for reporting. Hope the kids are safe.
Gujjus are also capable of selling their father for money.
Mr.Feku too did the same and is now selling the country.
Good! Gujarat model development!

If only every Indian had the social responsibility of Preethi Sood!
For money, a Gujju will sell his ......... too !
