Conference held on human trafficking in Hyderabad

Hyderabad: Indicating that many cases of human trafficking go unreported in India, Alok Agarwal, Member Secretary of National Legal Services Authority(NLSA), on Saturday, said that the numbers of human trafficking cases presented every year in National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) like 8,132 cases in 2016 and 5,466 cases in 2014, are much lower than the number of women suspected to have been trafficked and working in places, where human trafficking is suspected to often occur, in the country. He was speaking at inaugural of the two-day South Asia Regional Conference on Preventing Human Trafficking. Agarwal raised another issue that although NCRB gives figures of the number of human trafficking cases filed with police in country, it remains unknown as to in how many cases stringent action is taken under Section 370 of the IPC.

Every year, nearly 1.5 million girls in the country are married before they turn 18. But social attitudes on child marriage appear to be changing, according to global data released by Unicef on Tuesday. The prevalence of child marriage in India has dropped sharply from 47% in 2005-2006 to 27% in 2015-2016. The decadal decline in child marriage in the South Asia region has been sharp, says the Unicef study. India’s improved record has been attributed to higher levels of education among women and the provision of cash transfers as incentives for girls not to drop out of school by many states.

Anti-human trafficking bill open forum on Wednesday

Pune: Womens organisations in the city have pointed out several loopholes in Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill, which has been cleared by the Union cabinet recently. The bill proposes an imprisonment ranging from 10 years to life term for those involved in trafficking of humans for the purpose of begging, marriage, prostitution or labour, among others. The bill will become a law once it has been cleared by both houses of Parliament. However, women’s organisations here feel that there are many areas that have not been covered in the bill. With a view to addressing the concerns, they plan to organise an Open Forum on Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, protection and Rehabilitation) Bill, 2018, on April 18 along with the National Network of Sex workers.
