In the last few decades, the movement towards bringing an end to slavery and
human trafficking has gained momentum, but we cannot clearly visualize the plight of
the victims of trafficking and slavery1. Trafficking is one of the most indiscriminate
crimes happening around the globe affecting all types of people whether rich or poor,
boy or girl, black or white, educated or uneducated, married or unmarried, minor or
major, disabled or suffering from diseases2. Trafficking of young girls and children for
begging, organ transplant, child labor, forced or bonded labor, commercial sex work,
marriage and surrogacy is common not just in India but all around the globe3.
Trafficking in person report July, 2019, issued by the U.S department annually,
places India under Tier-2 country list which means that the Indian Government is
making significant efforts and contribution to stop human trafficking but does not yet
meet significantly positive results. Even being a Tier-2 country, India has no policy to
curb bride trafficking4. Indian Government and legal machinery fail to provide a safe
haven to human trafficking victims and stop their re-trafficking, especially in the case
of trafficked brides where the victims are re-trafficked frequently until they do not.
