Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking). It reportedly generates a profit of $32 billion every year. Almost 80 per cent of all worldwide trafficking is for sexual exploitation, with an estimated 1.2 million children being bought and sold into sexual slavery every year. (1)

Women and girls are the main victims, trafficked for purposes of prostitution, forced marriage and domestic work, which often entails sexual abuse. According to the government, India has about three million prostitutes, of which 40 per cent are children aged under 18. (2)
