Child prostitution is a multi billion dollar industry globally. With the 8% of increase in the flesh trade, today India has become one of the prominent names in child prostitution. These children are barely able to have one square meal a day as they earn around the equivalent of US $1 for sex, $2 on a good night, and less than a dollar on a bad night.
As per Research conducted there are as many as 10 million children involved in prostitution world wide.
Did you know that every year 2 million girls and children between the age of 5 and 15 are forced into commercial sex trade or trafficking around the world. Its indeed shameful that in a developing country like India, 40% of sex workers engaged in prostitution are actually children. Thus, every 40 out of 100
prostitutes are children in India.
Thus the soft or vulnerable targets are children aged between 10 and 14 years . Its alarming that a child goes missing in India somewhere every eight minutes. So, around half of India’s missing children last year were forced into prostitution. India’s flourishing flesh trade industry according to the government,has about 3 million prostitutes, of which 1.2 million percent are children aged under 18.
There are many kidnapped girls amongst them, in some cases even six month old babies who are brought to this ruthless tribe from far and wide. They are raised by the villagers as their own daughters. The head of the village says prostitution is a tradition in our community.The presence of policemen doesn’t seem to dampen the spirits of these miscreants.The menace of oxytocin hormone is back again with the seizure of oxytocin injections from an unlicensed store in MP this week, it has become clear that the hormone is still being used for the wrong purposes despite it being banned by the Government, notably to induce early puberty among girls who have been dragged into the flesh trade and sent to different parts in Indian and in the gulf countries abroad. Oxytocin was banned in 2014 by the Government of India. The study revealed that most of the girls were not told about the injection.
