Beijing, March 10 (IANS) At least 14 children were rescued and 38 suspects arrested when police busted two human trafficking rings in China, police said Saturday.

The rings were busted in southwest China’s Guizhou province, Xinhua reported.

A joint operation was carried out by police of Guizhou, Henan, Chongqing, and Zhejiang, police said.

The rings were identified after police seized two suspects, surnamed Wang and Xiao, on a train along with two babies in December last year.

Wang and Xiao purchased children in Guizhou and transferred them by train to Henan province for sale, police said.

DNA tests would be carried on the rescued children to find their families.

Over 3,000 gangs involved in human trafficking were busted across China last year, and more than 15,000 women and 8,000 children rescued by police, the government said Saturday.
