Report: Police Rescue Child Workers From Gap Supply Factory


New Dehli, Fourteen children working in a textiles factory have been rescued after media reports said an Indian clothing supplier to the Gap was employing underage workers, according to a report by global wire agency AFP (Agence France Presse).

Police carried out the raid after alerts by a nonprofit organization, which acted on a Britain’s Observer newspaper report that Indian children as young as 10 were working for a Gap supplier in New Delhi.

The children who were rescued late Monday worked in the building that houses the Gap supplier, but did not produce clothes for the US label, said the Save the Childhood Foundation, which works to rehabilitate child workers.
