The Heroic Act

The Mumbai Police raided the red light area of Mumbai, Kamathipura on February 6, 1996. Almost 456 survivors of the sex trafficking were bailed out, in the age group of 14-30 years. Surprisingly 128 girls of these were Nepalese with 50% of them being underaged.

The trouble in the lives of these girls only escalated when the Nepal government refused to accept them due to the unavailability of their Birth Certificates. The perturbed girls were left stranded as they had nowhere to go.

It was at this point, when Sunil Shetty intrigued and took matters in his hand. He not only booked return tickets for them, but also made all necessary accomodations for them back home. Anna did not let out a word of his heroic act inorder to keep the girls away from the avenue.
