New Delhi, Nov 4: From 8 in 2012 to 46 in 2015 is quite a big jump. This is the increase in the number of human trafficking cases on the Indo-Nepal border.
A report by the Ministry for Home Affairs shows that the number of cases of human trafficking reported in 2015 alone was 46 when compared to 8 in 2012. The rise in number of human trafficking cases has been attributed to the recent earthquake that devastated Nepal a few months back.
The earthquake has brought about a lot of misery in Nepal and several women fearing poverty have been forced to cross over into India and many have become victims of human trafficking.
