State governments of West Bengal and Maharashtra in last week of May 2014 signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on victims of trafficking. As per the MoU, the governments will identify and repatriate women and children, who are victims of trafficking.

The signed MoU will establish a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) under which the police can find the identities of rescued one after which they will be sent. This MoU was signed after Maharashtra police sent some Bengali speaking victims of trafficking back to West Bengal.

Reason for establishment of identities and standard operating procedure
Till now, Maharashtra Police has been sending Bengali-speaking victim of trafficking women and children directly to West Bengal without establishing their identity or following any procedure. In many cases the victims, who are repatriated to West Bengal belongs to Bangladesh and implementation of procedure will help police to identify the victims’ location and repatriate them at a proper place.
