    KATHMANDU, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- At least 73 Nepali women and children who were trafficed after being allured for employment have been rescued, Nepali national news agency RSS reported on Tuesday.

    They were trafficked during the past six months from various entry points of Parsa district (bordering to India), some 90 km south of Nepali capital Kathmandu.

    Though joint effort of local police and people remained substantial to bring back helpless Nepali women and children, only one case was filed against the traffickers during the period.

    A crime case on human trafficking was registered against Kanchha Lama, a local of Parsa district on Monday; report quoted a local police as saying.

    Lama was bringing 20-year-old woman Mandira Thapa Magar of Sindupalchowk district, some 40 km east of Nepali capital Kathmandu and her sister Hema Kumari, 15, to India alluring them to employ in India, said the report.

    According to the report, local policemen argued saying that the number of cases registered was very nominal due to the rising trend of mediation to settle the case each other.
