Over 100 cops sensitised on human trafficking in Chhattisgarh

RAIPUR: Over 100 police inspectors from the 27 districts of Chhattisgarh attended a training programme on sensitisation on human trafficking organised by the state police in collaboration with Shakti Vahini, a Delhi-based NGO.

A tribal district of Chhattisgarh, being a major hub of human trafficking and child trafficking where children are pushed into domestic slavery, flesh trade, forced marriage, needs extensive knowledge and follow-ups about laws and Acts meant for women and child rights, said experts.

Supreme Court lawyer Ravikant, who was the keynote speaker, sensitised investigating officers and police inspectors about their respective police stations, anti-human trafficking units, stakeholders and Childline about the right method of investigation.

“It becomes difficult when a minor has to be rescued from another state without having any background about the trafficked victim. Connecting with local police, stakeholders, Childline or NGOs of a particular place, helps track the victim easily. There is certain procedure that has to be followed to make the case stronger, which leads to increase in conviction rate,” Ravikant said.

Role of stakeholders and child welfare committees were discussed in dealing with complicated cases of rescuing minor children from other states. Many police officers admitted that there was a lot to be done in Chhattisgarh for enforcement and awareness about human trafficking.

Director general of police AN Upadhyay, in his address, said all boards and departments concerned have to jointly work to deal with human trafficking in state and for this everyone need to know about their rights.
