Easy to get bail from the court to encourages human traffickers, said L Pishak Singh, chairman of the Child Welfare Committee, Manipur speaking at a three-day district level training programme for Imphal West district police personnel on Monday.
The chairman, who spoke on the topic ‘Trafficking of women and children’, said even as there were various reports of trafficking of women and children in the state, most of them were not registered in the police stations under the provisions of human trafficking.
Most of such incidents were registered as cases of abductions, force labour, missing and rape (in case of women), he said, adding such cases are on rise in the state. The most difficult situation faced in the hill areas of the state was that such cases were solved with customary law.
Manipur police DIG (Administration), Clay Khongsai, in his inaugural speech, asserted that human trafficking was a modern phenomenon carried out with different purposes. Women were being trafficked for flesh trade while children for bonded labourers in hotel and restaurants in big cities, he said.
Such cases of trafficking were mostly reported at the Indo-Nepal border. Police have reports but still the menace is to be checked effectively, the DIG added.
In the context of Manipur, he said recruiting children as child soldiers by insurgents had given rise to child trafficking menace in the state.
Clay also observed the big role which has to be taken by police and other law enforcing agencies. He said police officers should know thoroughly the menace to tackle human trafficking in Manipur.
The training programme for the police personnel was conducted as a part of the countrywide proactive measures jointly adopted by the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India.
Around 25 police officers from the rank ASI to dy. sp participated in the training programme.
