Participating in the technical session of the workshop, Keisham Pradip, Chairperson of CWC, Imphal East said, “Manipur is becoming a fertile source for child trafficking.” Children from the state are being trafficked to other Indian states by giving false promises of providing better education, employment, training cum-jobs in spas, private security guards, etc.

Around 60% of the commercial sex workers (CSWs) inducted in brothel houses in India is minor girls.

Pradip, who spoke on topic- “Child Trafficking, rescue and rehabilitation” , went on to say that poor parents are betrayed and entangled in the prevailing socio-economic conditions in the state, thus forcing them to send their children outside states for better jobs, education or livelihood.

However, if the children landed into the hands of traffickers, they are kept illegal homes or in servitude along with depriving proper food, cloths, seizure of visas or forcing them into flesh trade, he observed.

He also informed that with the help of state police, Social Welfare Department has rescued 327 children from various illegal children homes in other parts of the country this year alone.
