The High Commission of India in Nairobi rescued three Indian girls, who were trafficked from India to Kenya. Seven Nepalese women were also rescued in a joint operation by the High Commission of India in Nairobi and Kenya police.

It has been learnt that girls were trafficked by a racket, which worked out of Punjab.

"We have rescued three Indian girls from Kenya. The girls were victims of an organized crime syndicate that indulged in trafficking of girls. Seven Nepalese girls were also rescued. Their Passports and phones were taken and they were held captive in Mombasa," External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj posted on Twitter, shortly before leaving for a tour to Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore.

In a series of tweets, Swaraj appreciated the efforts of Suchitra Durai, High Commissioner of India to Kenya, as well as Karan Yadav, first secretary at the High Commission of India in Nairobi. "We thank the Kenyan Police for their help," she posted on Twitter.

All three Indian women were flown back to the country. The Ministry of External Affairs shared the details with the Punjab government to register case against the traffickers.
