The girls were trafficked were caught by local police while trying to escape the traffickers

Twelve Bangladeshi teenage girls, who were trafficked to India with fake job promises, returned home on Thursday evening after serving two years of jail term in India for illegal entry.

They were handed over to two NGOs, Justice and Care and Bangladesh Women Lawyers Association after their return through Benapole Immigration check post.

The girls were illegally sent to Hyderabad of India by human traffickers two years ago, Benapole Immigration Police OC Ahsan Habib told UNB.

They were promised a good job and better future, he said.

But once they figured that they were manipulated, they tried escaping and were later caught by local police.

Later an Indian court sentenced them to two years in prison, said Ahsan adding that on completion of their jail term, they were kept at a shelter called Prajwala.

The Bangladesh government issued a special travel permit for their return home, the OC said.
