about the video

26 boys were rescued from a jeans factory in Delhi’s Seelampur area. The boys aged between 8 to 13 years were made to work in inhuman conditions and were brutally tortured. They were allowed to sleep for just a couple of hours and one of the boys recalls how the owner used to beat them with hammers when he had to wake them up or punish them for being slow. All boys are from Motihari district of Bihar and were brought to Delhi around six months ago. Six of them are from the same village, indicating that they could have been victims of child trafficking.
