Mumbai, 14th November 2022: Young women and minor girls are trafficked on a large scale and forced into prostitution or marriage and sexually assaulted. In the last year, 856 trafficked girls and young women from Maharashtra have been dragged into the sex trade. In this regard, the shocking information that the state ranks first in the country has come out from the records of the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB).


There has been a massive increase in human trafficking over the past few years. Mainly minor girls and young women are trafficked from certain states of India, along with big cities, by showing them different lures. They are then pushed into prostitution. In cases of such offences, the offence is registered under the provisions of the Immoral Prostitution (Prevention) Act and various sections of the Indian Penal Code. In many cases, only those who buy girls and force them into prostitution are booked. Also, a case is filed against the brokers who run the practice. But, no action is taken against those who traffic girls, lure them to the city and buy girls by paying money to their parents. The chain of persons or brokers continues.


According to NCRB records, 856 of the trafficked minor girls in the state have been forced into prostitution in the last year. 584 from Telangana state and 223 minor girls from Andhra Pradesh have been reported to have been trafficked and forced into prostitution.


Poverty, unemployment, the attraction of living in the city, girls who don’t want responsibility or girls who have lost the umbrella of their parents are trafficked on a large scale. In some cases, girls are forced into prostitution directly after getting married in a temple by paying money to their parents. Even the parents who do not cover the dowry and expenses required for marriage have come to the fore of selling girls in the name of marriage.


After being rescued by the police from the mire of prostitution, the girls are kept in a government reformatory. Such girls are not accepted by their parents or relatives for fear of disgrace. Therefore, the victimized girls have no choice but to go back to prostitution after a few days. It is necessary to give education and training to young women in the swamp of prostitution to stand on their own feet. However, no one from the police, women and child welfare department, home ministry, or administrative department shows seriousness about the victimized girls.
