As many as 50 agents and middlemen have been arrested for allegedly trafficking labourers in three districts of Odisha, a police officer said on Friday.

The accused persons were arrested during simultaneous drives in Rayagada, Nabarangpur and Kalahandi districts on Thursday night.

"In our sustained drive against illegal labour trafficking, simultaneous drives launched last night in Rayagada, Nabarangpur and Kalahandi districts. 50 agents and middlemen arrested in specific cases," said DGP Bijay Kumar Sharma in a tweet.

He said an investigation is underway to trace their links in the trafficking ring.

Last week, at least 41 middlemen were arrested in Balangir and Nuapada districts for allegedly trafficking labourers to other states.
