Families of 2000 sex workers recieved meat of Qurbani ( sacrificial animal slaughter) on the day of the Eid-ul-Azha by a initiative of Uttoron Foundation, an organization of a police member, in Rajbari.
After recieving the gift on Saturday from the hands of the law enforcers, sex workers from the Daulatdia brothel in Rajbari's Goalanda upazila said this is the first time they had recieved the meat of Qurbani.
