Delhi’s 5 most dreaded woman criminals- Running sex racket to ordering murders

A 32-year-old woman who snatches cell phones for a living; a mother of eight who orders killings for money; a 35-year-old-woman who runs Delhi’s biggest prostitution racket — the Capital has its fair share of women criminals. Some of them, police say, are “godmothers” who run their own gangs with men working under them. One of Delhi’s most wanted is a 62-year-old woman, declared absconding in a murder case.

India’s first anti-human trafficking law proposes life term for repeat offenders

Life imprisonment for repeat offenders, special courts and dedicated police units are part of key provisions in India’s first law to tackle human trafficking that is likely to be taken to Parliament for approval in the current session. The bill, reviewed by HT, also proposes a jail term of at least a year and a fine of Rs 1 lakh for those who abet trafficking or fail to protect a victim; and seven years and Rs 2 lakh fine for the owner or manager of a property that has been used for the crime. Around 8,100 cases of trafficking were recorded in India in 2016 and around 23,000 victims of trafficking were rescued that year, according to National Crime Records Bureau figures that experts call a “mere tip of the iceberg”. Currently, trafficking is covered by a clutch of laws that often delay trials but the government has been working on an umbrella legislation for more than two years.

Govt plans anti-human trafficking unit under NIA

New Delhi: Taking note of the rising cases of forced labour and commercial sexual exploitation of women and children, the Centre is planning to set up a dedicated anti-human trafficking wing under a central investigation agency like the National Investigation Agency.

Non-Goan trafficking victims face cops bias

Panaji: The bias some members of the state police hold against victims of human trafficking who are not native to Goa is one of the major hurdles faced while rehabilitating the latter, Arun Pandey of NGO ARZ said on Saturday at Difficult Dialogue, an international conference. He cited an incident wherein the victim, who had been trapped in the flesh trade, was rendered suicidal after the local police revealed her identity in the village where her family was settled in, in Goa. Investigation was needed to check if the rescued girl — hailing from West Bengal — was vulnerable and at risk of being trafficked again.
