Hyderabad, Jan 30 (IBNS): About 90 children, some as young as 8-year-old, were rescued from Bihar after multiple raids on bangle-making units in Hyderabad on Thursday, media reports said.

Sources said that these children were bought against a payment to their families. They were kept under inhuman conditions and virtually held captive inside small rooms. They were forced to work from dawn to dusk.

The children were bought from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar after paying around Rs. 5000 to 10,000 to their parents.

Last Saturday, over 200 children from Bihar were rescued by the Hyderabad police in an early morning raid in the Bhavani Nagar area.
