Missing kids: CID forms special anti-human trafficking unit
With over 400 children still "untraceable" for the last five years, the state CID has formed dedicated anti-human trafficking units, IG (CID) Anil Pratham said.
"There are 10 units across the state at present and more will be formed to locate vulnerable children and rescue those found in the trap of human traffickers," he said.
The units have also been given dedicated vehicles.
Since many policemen have little knowledge of human trafficking for commercial labour and flesh trade, they have been even asked to enroll for a certificate course in the subject with the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), the officer said.
Around 50 police officers, both junior and seniors including Pratham himself, have enrolled for the six-month course. "This course will give them in-depth knowledge on the subject," Pratham said.
