WHY MURSHIDABAD IS A HAVEN FOR WOMEN TRAFFICKING?

 

The International Labour Organization (ILO) estimates that West Bengal ranks among the 8 Indian states. women trafficking owing to a shared porous border of 2,217 kilometers with Bangladesh. It often serves as a transit location for thousands of Bangladeshi women who are trafficked into India each year. Sex trafficking is known to be particularly prevalent in the Murshidabad district of West Bengal, due to its close proximity to the Bangladesh border. Often attributed to the lack of available economic opportunities in the region, migration is common in the district leaving families vulnerable to women trafficking. The district has a population of 7.1 million, with a 70% Muslim population, and an average literacy rate of 67.53%.
