Ten-fold decrease in trafficking in Bangla

The latest National Crime Records Bureau report (crimes for 2017) has revealed that the number of cases related to trafficking in Bangla has undergone a ten-fold reduction.

From 3,579 in 2016 the number of trafficking cases reduced to 357 in 2017. Consequently, the number of victims below18 years who were trafficked has also decreased significantly – from 3,113 in 2016 to 319 in 2017.

Programmes like Swayangsinddha, mass awareness and active participation of the police at all levels are the primary reasons for these achievements.
