In France, about 300 Indian citizens suspected of being victims of human trafficking were held at Paris-Vatry Airport following a police operation.

Judges were expected to decide on extending their detention.

The passengers, including children and families, were detained due to a suspected human trafficking scheme. (Trending: Democrat Found Guilty In Corruption Trial)

Head of the Châlons-en-Champagne Bar Association, Francois Procureur, said, “I don’t know if this has ever been done before in France.”

“We cannot keep foreigners in a waiting area for more than 96 hours. Beyond that, it is the liberty and custody judge who must rule on their fate,” added Procureur.

The airline denied involvement and stated that the necessary passport information was communicated prior to the flight.

The U.S. government has designated Nicaragua as failing to meet minimum standards for eliminating human trafficking, and the country has been used as a migratory springboard for those fleeing poverty or conflict.

The influx of Indian migrants through Mexico has significantly increased.
