Kokrajhar, Aug. 22: A flesh trade racket was busted here after the mother of a minor girl approached the south Kokrajhar unit of All Bodo Students Union (Absu) complaining that her daughter had fallen into bad company.
The Absu activists, with the help of the girl’s mother, managed to trace the girl to a restaurant, along with two other girls of the same age.
