CHILDLINE – Case Study – Two boys sold away by parents -Rescued -2011 | ODP Mysore

Ajay aged 6 and Ganesh aged 4 were sold away by their parents Ravi and Manjula who lived in Sathagalli slum of Mysore city. They were very poor and lived from hand to mouth. In the face of acute poverty they had sold their sons to an auto-rickshaw driver from Shanthinagar.
On 28.02.2011, 6 months after they were parted with the children, CHILDLINE, Mysore learnt about the incident and rescued the boys after obtaining information with great difficulty from the parents, about the auto-rickshaw driver to whom their sons were sold. First the boys were put in the Government boys’ home with the help of CWC and later on joined for regular schooling.
