Bangalore:  Human Trafficking constitutes the third largest organized crime (after drugs and the arms trade) in the world which is growing year on year. The United Nations defines trafficking as ‘any activity leading to recruitment, transportation, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of threat or use of force or a position of vulnerability.’ According to the Home ministry data, Karnataka, with 1,379 human trafficking cases during the period 2009-2012, emerges as the hub of human trafficking. This state also reported the third highest number of such cases in India after its neighboring states Tamil Nadu (2,244 cases) and Andhra Pradesh (2,157), reports Arun Dev for TOI.

In the fast-growing southern metros like Bangalore, traffickers find it easy to entice victims with huge salaries and luxurious lifestyles. A large portion of trafficking victims, especially migrant laborers are often forced into flesh trade. Over 300 bonded labourers were rescued in Bangalore during the recent raid carried out by the NGO and government officials.
