A total of 13 bonded labourers have been rescued from a farmhouse in Tamil Nadu's Erode, police said on Friday.

The labourers were forced to work after one of their relatives could not repay Rs 27,000 she had borrowed from a person, the police said.

The relative Kanavukanni, aged 21, and her family members were handed over by the person, who had lent the Rs 27,000, to another person who forced the family, including Kanavukanni, to work as farmworkers, they said.
