International Journal of Human Rights and Constitutional Studies (IJHRCS), Vol. 9, No. 4, 2022

Abstract: Despite human trafficking being a strictly punishable crime in India, the instances of it are as regular as they are gory. Not only the constitutional safeguards have failed to deter the traffickers from selling young girls to corrupt pimps, but also the police have coerced numerous victims into the trade of flesh. Some effective measures of prohibiting and preventing this act, and empowering women and girls, as per the UN Sustainable Development Goals, have been provided through the length of this paper. It ranges from tighter border security measures to amendments in the existing statutes. The Apex Court judgments have also been banked upon for bettering the ongoing situation. The study brings out real-life instances, through case studies, to highlight the traumatic cycle of this commonly occurring crime. Finally, the paper provides two approaches for a constructive and productive result to deal with this wrong.
