Saugata Roy makes an intervention on The Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill, 2018
Actually I have two small points; I do believe that this offence of trafficking is not known to the people in general. I saw a Hindi film called ‘Mardaani’ starring Rani Mukherjee which really brought out this problem of child trafficking. Would the Minister please consider promoting a film or films in different languages by noted directors to highlight the problem of particularly child trafficking?
The second question I want to ask that at the national level she has given the task of investigation to the NIA. The national investigative agencies are already overburdened with crimes concerning terrorism. I would like to ask her whether she would consider setting up a different national body for investigating crimes regarding trafficking? That would be very proper instead of burdening the already overburdened national investigative agencies.
