JODHPUR: The entire racket of cross-border human trafficking operated through agents on both sides of the border, who would bring the girls to India and hand them over to Sujoy Biswas, who would further supply them through his network spread in many cities of the country.
In this entire racket, the girls were treated like objects by the agents, who would bring them from Bangladesh to India and hand them over to Biswas, the kingpin of human trafficking racket, currently under the police custody, who would charge depending upon the 'quality' of these 'objects'. SHO (Udaimandir) Madan Beniwal said that the amount given to the agents against this work was not fixed. They would charge depending upon varying conditions like availability of girls, ease of crossing the border and age and features of the girls. "Interestingly, the agents would not disclose the source or address of the place in Bangladesh they brought the girls from," he said, adding that the agents had liaisons with the border guards who would hardly intervene.
"Operators-Biswas, Sukhjaan alias Tumpa alias Nandini and Sonu-would cross the border with the help of these agents," said Beniwal. Police, however, have been desperately trying to explore the forward and backward linkages of the kingpin of the racket, Sujoy Biswas. He was on Friday produced in the court, which extended his police custody for three more days.
Besides, the police also sent Tumpa and Sonu, who were under judicial custody for kidnapping a 3-year-old girl, to police remand for their combined interrogation.
According to police commissioner Ashok Kumar Rathore, they were trying to find out how they crossed the border, brought the girls from Bangladesh and how and where they supplied the girls.
"The accused are hardened criminals but we are trying our best to gather as much information as possible so that we could bust the entire racket and rescue the girls," said Rathore.
A whopping 250 per cent jump has been witnessed in human trafficking cases in northeastern states last year as compared to 2015, with most being reported from Assam. Of the total 1,539 human trafficking cases registered in 2015, as many as 1,494 were from Assam, 20 from Meghalaya, 16 from Tripura, six from Nagaland and three from Arunachal Pradesh, an official said.
In a major breakthrough, Chhattisgarh Police busted a human trafficking racket in Bastar district and rescued 70 victims, including 20 minor boys and 13 minor girls, news agency ANI reported. The racket was busted on Wednesday and five people have been arrested in connection with the case. Chhattisgarh is infamous for its rising number of human trafficking cases.
VIJAYAWADA: Expressing concern over the rising woman and child trafficking in India, former inspector general of CID S Umapathi said Vijayawada has become a major transit hub for human trafficking.
Umapathi, who was honoured by the US for his contribution in the fight against trafficking, was addressing the national conference on Mapping India’s National Security Challenges here on Monday.
He said human trafficking was an organised crime where women and children from marginalised and under-privileged sections are targeted. He said it was a misconception that only women and girl children are trafficked. Even boys are being trafficked, he pointed out.
He said at the local level, some cops and even local leaders like sarpanches are colluding with the traffickers. He said this is enabling the traffickers to escape punishment.
Making a detailed presentation of the trafficking networks in the country, he said Anantapur topped the charts in trafficking followed by Ongole. He said places like Kadiri, Rayachoti, Rajampeta, Madanapalle, Rajole, Peddapuram, Palakole, Nidadavole have recorded considerable numbers of trafficking victims. In AP, around 3.2 lakh victims were identified, he said. Across the country, as many as 32 lakh victims and 220 vulnerable mandals, 6 crore bonded labourers have been identified,
A 14 anni paga a carissimo prezzo l’eccessiva fiducia in una vicina di casa, ma per sua fortuna viene salvata giusto in tempo dal padre. Questa ragazza indiana è andata davvero vicina a non rivedere più la sua famiglia, dopo essere stata rapita da una banda di trafficanti di esseri umani e venduta più volte.
Nata e cresciuta in un sobborgo di Nuova Delhi, la giovane ricorda di essere stata invitata a casa di una sua vicina, Meenu, con cui era da tempo in buoni rapporti e di cui non vi erano motivi per dubitare. Dopo averle offerto un drink, la donna le ha chiesto di accompagnarla al Tempio, dove le aspettavano altri due uomini. Da quel momento la giovane ha un vuoto e ricorda solamente di essersi risvegliata in presenza di Meenu e di un altro uomo. Quest’uomo chiamato Baljeet l’aveva appena acquistata come moglie pagandola circa 90mila Rupie. Da un giorno all’altro, dunque, la quattordicenne si è ritrovata sposa di uno sconosciuto e lontana chilometri dalla sua famiglia. “Per fortuna era buono con me, mi ha comprata solo per il bisogno di sposarsi. Inizialmente gli ho detto che la mia famiglia mi maltrattava ma poi gli ho confessato la verità. Lui mi ha capita e mi ha promesso di riaccompagnarmi a casa, ma quando l’ha detto a Meenu lei si è arrabbiata e non gliel’ha permesso. Una notte mi ha rapita di nuovo e portata via con sé”, ha affermato la giovane.

CHENNAI: The US Consulate with the Madras Christian Council for Social Services (MCCSS) released a short documentary on anti-human trafficking called `Akhalya' inspired by the true story of a trafficked child.
The 20-minute documentary, funded by the Union ministry for women and child, captures the story of a teen girl aspiring to be a cine star. She was lured by traffickers under the pretext of offering her film opportunities. "The girl hailed from a rural background and it was very easy for others to trap her as she did not have parental or family care either. This was one of the stories that truly touched us and we wanted to share it to raise awareness, especially among young women who are attracted to the glamour world and shouldn't be conned in their journey ," said Isabelle Richardson, executive secretary of MCCSS.
Akhalya is the second part of the film Kadathal (Trafficked). The council decided to tell the story through the film medium as it felt that films always catch the attention of students. As part of their student awareness programmes, the council will screen the film and distribute CDs in schools and colleges to raise awareness.
