Panaji: Twenty children were rescued late Friday after police raided a travelling circus in the state, police said on Saturday.
Police raided the camp in Margao, 35 km from Panaji, after a girl complaint accused the circus manager of raping her.

"The children were being made to work as acrobats and helpers in the circus," a police official from the Goa Police Women`s police station said.
The rescued children have been sent to Apna Gar, a state-run Children`s Home near Panaji.
