As Lalit’s health deteriorated in the brick kiln, he sought permission from the kiln’s owner to return home, but was refused permission. Finally, Lalit and his wife returned to Bolangir for treatment, but had to leave behind Sritam in the kiln.As Lalit became weak after an operation and could not do hard labour, he couldn’t go back to the brick kiln again. Lalit and Jayanti requested social worker Lalit Nayak who appealed to the district administration to help rescue the detained child.Bolangir police after the intervention of additional SP Yugal Kishore, registered a case and sent a team of labour officials, including ALO Dileshwar Khaka and ASI Lingaraj Seth, to Andhra Pradesh.“We went to Andhra Pradesh and contacted the local police and labour officials there and with their co-operation, we could bring back the child,” a police official said.“The brick kiln owner was giving Rs 20 for carrying 500 bricks. At times, I also had to bring petrol for vehicles. I missed my parents and sister very much,” Sritam said. Sritam, on reaching Bolangir, met his parents and sister after two months and the reunion scene was moving. “I thank the district administration for such prompt action. Efforts should be made so that in future such incidents are not repeated,” Nayak said.
