An Indian court has ordered the labor ministry, police and New Delhi government to report on efforts to rehabilitate people rescued from bonded labor, after allegations that many did not receive support they were legally entitled to. The order issued by the Delhi High Court on Monday came in response to a petition claiming that the government has failed to provide rehabilitation, including jobs, education and cash compensation.
