At last, Champa freed from the clutches of traffickers
Law enforcers became active to rescue Champa, a garment worker, after a report titled ‘Bhaiya please save me’ was published in English daily the Dhaka Tribune on December 3. Officer-in-Charge of Sreepur police station Asaduzzaman said they arrested Mobarak after publication of the report over the helpless situation of Champa. “We also kept pressure on Mobarak to bring Champa back to the country from Saudi Arabia,” he said. Finding no alternative, Mobarak phoned the employer of Champa and asked them to send Champa back to the country. Champa, a ready-made garment worker at Keowa Uttarpara village under the upazila, was trafficked to Saudi Arabia and forced to engage in prostitution in Amintu area, Ryad, capital of Saudi Arabia. She was kept in a separate room there and tortured by Taslima, a Bangali woman, who was involved in the business. Champa said: “Taslima used to beat up me with iron-made chain, as I refuse to involve in prostitution.” “After a few days, some women at the building came to me and took care of mine,” she also said. Police said after arrest, Mobarak sent a message to his accomplishes in Saudi Arabia and asked them to send Champa back to Bangladesh. Later, they sent her in Bangladesh by a flight of Saudi Arabia. As soon as Champa landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, Dhaka, Mobarak received her according to the direction of the police. Later, police took custody of Champa at Mawna intersection. Family of Champa sensed her danger after a phone call. Recently, Al Amin, brother of Champa, phoned her and heard a shout which was saying: “Bhaiya [brother] please, save me.” Then, Champa’s family went to police and informed them about the matter. Although police arrested Mobarak on November 28, but later freed him for unknown reason. After the publication of the a report in the Dhaka Tribune, law enforcers became active and managed to rescue Champa. Accoring to family, Mobarak Hossain, 45, a resident in Kapasia allured Champa offering a lucrative job in Saudi Arabia. He then demanded Tk70,000 from her. Then, Champa, a divorcee, gave him Tk40,000 in advance and requested Mobarak to take the rest amount of the money after she goes to Saudi Arabia. On September 29, she left Dhaka for Saudi Arabia. Before her departure, Mobarak took signature of Nabi, brother of Champa, in a white paper saying that the signature was needed for Champa’s job.
