Girls trafficked from Delhi, Kejriwal urged to act

Panaji, July 6 (IANS) An anti-trafficking NGO in Goa has urged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to act against an organised trafficking network in the national capital involved in trafficking girls and women for commercial sexual exploitation to Goa.

In a letter to Kejriwal, Arun Pandey of Anyay Rahit Zindagi (ARZ) has said that a large section of the girls and women rescued from “massage parlours” in Goa were trafficked from Delhi after being picked up from states like West Bengal, Assam, Nagaland and Manipur by promising them well-paying jobs.

“We believe that trafficking cannot be controlled unless there is collaboration between government and non-government agencies in source, transit and destination areas,” the letter said.

“The agencies in source, transit and destination needs to exchange information, and collaborate to prevent trafficking; protect and rehabilitate those who are trafficked and prosecute those involved in trafficking of girls for commercial sexual exploitation,” Pandey said in his letter to the Delhi Chief Minister.

ARZ is a nodal agency appointed by the anti-human trafficking unit of the Goa Police and is involved in debriefing and counselling the women rescued by the police in raids on brothels and massage parlours, many of which according to Pandey, masquerade as prostitution hubs.
