In a bid to prevent all forms of crimes against women and children, the police department together with NGOs have launched anti – human trafficking clubs. Additional Director General of Police, N. Ravi said that 70% of the trafficked victims were sexually exploited and 70% of the sufferers were women.
He said that the need of the hour was to formulate strategies and get enforcement agencies and every organ of the government to work together in harmony to fight against trafficking. It has been found that 1.17 lakh children go missing every year in India out of which only around 40000 of them are traced. This implies that the remaining number of children are exploited. Plans are on to form Anti human trafficking clubs in colleges across the state in the coming months. These clubs would work both inside and outside the campus to create awareness and to rescue and reintegrate trafficking survivors in partnership with the district NGOS.
