On Thursday, Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Women (APSCW) team headed by its Secretary Yame Higio along with women police personnel had rescued a woman and her two-year-old daughter from Majuli, Assam.

The team had called on Majuli Additional Superintendent of Police Leena Doley and DSP Deepjyoti Talukdar.

On the same evening, the APSCW team handed over the woman and the child to the authority of the short-stay home run by the Oju Welfare Association in Naharlagun for safe custody as a temporary arrangement.

On being enquired, the woman stated that her husband's name is Tasa and he works as a night chowkidar in the PW department. She said she had come to Itanagar from Paleng, the APSCW informed in a release.

The woman had informed the APSCW that she had left Itanagar for North Lakhimpur in Assam for medical treatment, but the bus she was traveling in dropped her at Dhakuakhana instead.

Later, the Majuli police brought her to the civil hospital in Garamur, but she could not remember how she reached Majuli.

The APSCW further informed that the woman and her child are currently receiving medical treatment at the TRIHMS.

The commission lauded the Women Help Line, the capital SP, the Majuli police, and the OWA for their cooperation and logistic support. It urged the public to trace out the woman's husband's address and inform the either the APSCW or the Women Helpline/Oju Mission/Women police station, Itanagar.
