The Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) on Tuesday conducted an operation against child labour in Guwahati’s Jyotikuchi and busted a bakery shop for employing underage workers.

According to reports, the operation was conducted at Ananda Bakery at Shankar Nagar in Jyotikuchi in Guwahati following complaints against the establishment of employing children.

Moreover, Childline service was able to rescue one minor from the premises during the operation.

Meanwhile, the owner of the bakery was identified as Raj Narayan Pradhan and further investigation into the matter will be undertaken, officials said.
