01 November 2007, New Delhi: In yet another rescue operation on complaint filed and lead by the child rights NGO Bachpan Bachao Andolan “BBA” (Save the Childhood Movement), 75 child labourers between the ages 7 and 15 years were rescued from the Khanpur area of South Delhi.
29th October 2007: Sheikh Mohammad (name changed), a 14 year was brought by his Maternal Uncle to Shahpur Jaat, New Delhi. Little that he knew at that time that his maternal uncle will just leave him in strange place with strange people stuffed in different rooms working tediously in dark dingy stinky rooms. Now it has been 1 year since that first day of his work, still he is been recognised as a trainee and given Rs. 500 per month.
On May 19 2007, Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA) along with the labour department and police officials rescued 93 children working in gold smithing in the most appalling conditions of work. Several children bore scars from acid burns and dangerous chemicals.
