为迎接伊万卡访问,印度一城市驱逐6000余名乞丐!"_双语新闻

(CNN) — Police in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad are doing a last-minute sweep to get beggars off the streets ahead of Ivanka Trump’s visit later this month.

CNN电 在伊万卡·特朗普本月末的访问前,印度南部城市海得拉巴的警方在对街头的乞丐做最后的清理。

The unprecedented order was given by the city’s police commissioner earlier this week and will last for two months, according to V.K. Singh, the director general of prisons in Hyderabad.

据海得拉巴狱长V.K.辛格介绍,这一史无前例的命令是由该市的公安局局长本周初下达。

President Trump’s daughter is scheduled to attend the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in the city -- one of India’s tech hubs -- at the end of November. Despite the timing, authorities deny they are rounding up beggars because of her visit.

特朗普总统的女儿预计于11月末参加这一印度技术中心之一的全球创业者峰会。尽管时机巧合,但是相关部门否认他们逮捕乞丐是因为她的访问。

"It’s a permanent drive," Singh told CNN. "The government, since 30 years, have been trying to figure out what to do about them." The commissioner plans to renew the order after it expires, he added.

“这是一个永久性的努力,”辛格向CNN表示。“30年来,政府一直在努力想出处理他们的办法。”他补充道,局长计划在该命令结束后对其进行恢复。

Speaking on a wider issue surrounding Hyderabad’s begging crisis, Singh said: "There is a mafia or a network behind this who force people to beg or kidnap some children and force them into begging."

辛格在提及海得拉巴乞讨危机更广泛的问题时说道:“这幕后有一个黑手党或组织网,他们强迫人们乞讨,或者绑架一些孩子,强迫他们乞讨。”

Begging is a criminal act in Andhra Pradesh state under the Prevention of Begging Act 1977. But the recent campaign to move Hyderabad’s beggars off the city’s streets only started in late October, prompting speculation that it was in preparation for the summit.

在安得拉邦,根据《1977年防乞讨法令》,乞讨是一种犯罪行为。但是,将海得拉巴的乞丐赶出城市街头的最近行动仅始于10月末,这使得很多人猜想这是为此次峰会做准备。

Since the order was given earlier this week, police have rounded up 198 people and have taken them to "structures" next to existing prisons, according to Singh.

据辛格介绍,自从该命令本周初被下达后,警方已经逮捕了198人,并把他们带至现有监狱附近的“建筑物”内。
