Nepalese woman, two kids rescued from bonded labour in Mysuru village

Mysuru, Dec 8 (IANS): A Nepalese woman and her two children, who were forced into bonded labour at a farm in the Kailasapura village in Mysuru district, were rescued, said officials on Friday.

According to the authorities, Nirmala, hailing from Nepal, had come to work with her husband Gopal and their two children at a farm owned by Ere Gowda. They had been working at the farm for the last one and a half years.

Gowda had set a daily wage of Rs 300 for Gopal and Rs 200 for Nirmala. They were compelled to work from 4 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. When questioned about this, Ere Gowda separated the couple. Gopal was kept in Kodagu and was not allowed to communicate with his family. Nirmala, likewise, was not permitted to speak with him over the phone.

Nirmala, the victim, informed officers that she had been assaulted and denied food multiple times. She also accused Gowda of making her children work. The accused landlord prevented them from returning to their native place.

A team from the district authorities, led by Tehsildar Srinivas, CDPO Asha, and officers from the Social Welfare Department and Tribal Development Department, conducted a raid on the farm and rescued the woman and her two children.

Nirmala and her children were handed over to the custody of the Child Development Project Officer (CDPO). Legal action was being initiated against the accused landlord by the authorities.

    What was the reason of separating the couple? Something behind to keep the woman by him and send the man elsewhere?Now Gowda should pay the dues from the time they were here rupee to Rupee to them. Even made children to work ?Time to chain him and throw inside. Free the couple from his clutches. We need workers everywhere. Let children go to school regularly.

    Why you guys are so greedy? Give the worker what he supposed to get and give to God what HE supposed to receive from you (A good heart? which you never had) A man connected to his heart is kind to everyone.
