What is Operation AAHT?
Operation AAHT has been launched to curb human trafficking.
As part of the operation, special teams will be deployed on all long-distance trains/routes with focus on rescuing victims, particularly women and children, from the clutches of traffickers.
The infrastructure and intelligence network of the RPF will be utilized to collect, collate and analyze clues on victims, source, route, destination, popular trains used by suspects, kingpins and shared with other law-enforcing agencies.
Hence, the RPF could act as a bridge cutting across States to assist the local police in the mission to curb the menace of human trafficking.
