We may crib about not having enough cash for few day, we may also complaint standing in queues, we may not get chance to buy new things after demonetization, but we should realise that the move has saved the lives of thousands of innocent girls.
Human trafficking industry is one of the most horrendous mafia working in India kidnapping innocent little girls, women and use them as sex workers has been come to a grinding halt. This information was revealed by the rescue workers on the ground recently. According to the study, the girls are kidnapped from all over the country until November every year, and then are transported to all different places nationally and internationally using middleman. They are sold to brothels, placement agencies and as child brides. Many times, people who indulge in black magic also buy them through dealers.
These kids once sold to brothels can never come back to normal life, as the impact of the suffering is intense and they often lose their mental balance and accept their life as prostitutes. Many girls who try to escape are usually killed or they are punished most brutally that it becomes impossible for them to remove the scar from their minds.
But ever since the demonetization was announced on November 8th, the rescue workers have told that the trafficking has been STOPPED COMPLETELY and not one girl has been trafficked. The rescue workers said that they had never seen this biusiness hit rock bottom in the past.
They said during the month of November and December the demand for the girls due to holiday season and New Year Parties, but now there is no movement of these middleman in the market. In northern India Assam, Bihar and Jharkhand are in Southern India, Chennai, Banglore and Hyderabad are the places where girls are trafficked the most. All the transaction of selling and buying used to happen through cash and now the employees and mafia heads do not have money to pay to the middleman. These people mostly used 500 and 1000 rupee note as it was easy, but ow there is no liquidity which has hit the business badly. Rakesh Singer, a child rights activist with Bachpan Bachao Andolan, an NGO said that they found at least 10-15 cases of child trafficking every day, but since demonetization there is no report of any child trafficking which is most amazing.
Kailash Satyatri said that black money was the back bone of the child trafficking industry and now the back bone has been fractured badly after deometization. He also added that the team met the Prime Minister appraised him about the development and suggested to take further steps to ensure that black money doesn’t get accumulated in the system again.
