Amritsar: PM Narendra Modi imposed lockdown on March 25 to curb the COVID-19 spread and banned all modes of transport. Many were stranded across states until the government took the onus to ferry them back to their towns. PM Modi also appealed to help people in need and not to lay off any employee from any firms. However, the plight of nine Naga girls were no less than horrific for the past 60 days. The girls who had come to Amritsar in search of work were held hostage for not paying rent.
The girls were fed only with maggi but were locked up inside a house by their landlord. The victims managed to get in touch with an NGO and asked for help, who in turn informed the police. The cops rescued the hostages and warned the landlord not to take such action against the girls.
