Person Not ‘Possession, Child Not ‘Commodity- A Study on Child Trafficking in Jharkhand, India
      Ashwini Barla
Abstract: Jharkhand has today emerged as a major source area for intra-country trafficking in India. Most of the trafficking in Jharkhand is of tribals for domestic labour to metropolitan cities where there is a demand for such work. In cities like Delhi, a number of illegal placement agencies have proliferated. These agencies take advantage of legal loopholes to traffic mostly innocent girls in the name of providing employment but instead are put into extreme condition of forced labour. 12-14 hours of work every day is a routine practice for these girls. Many of those rescued also report physical and sexual abuse. Several cases of sexual slavery have also been reported from the victims rescued in Delhi. Some of the victims were trafficked to Haryana and Punjab for the purpose of bonded labour and forced marriage.
