Rangia: Police on Sunday busted a human trafficking racket today and rescued five teenagers from the Rangia railway station in lower Assam`s Kamrup district when they were about to board a train for New Delhi.
On suspicion, police questioned the children, which included a girl, along with their escort Basir Ali when they were about to board a New Delhi-bound train, sources said.
