The police force of Andhra Pradesh added another achievement to its name, when officers recently rescued 49 children as part of Operation Muskan. The operation was put in place along with the Women Development and Child Welfare Department, and NGOs, including Childline India.

According to a report by the Times of India, children who were found abandoned on roads, begging in traffic, or working as labourers were rescued by the police, who then put in the necessary measures to ensure that the children were looked after safely.

Children whose parents could be found were returned to their homes, while the orphans were handed over to a Child Welfare Committee.
