Human Trafficking is a multifaceted issue and is considered as one of the most serious crimes in the 21st century. It has truly become a worldwide danger to vulnerable men, women, and children across the globe. Despite having various laws and regulations both in national and international level human trafficking is still prevailing and is a tragic reality. The menace of human trafficking has been considered as a grave violation of human rights in the present day scenario. Trafficking in human beings, especially children and women, is a form of modern day slavery and requires a comprehensive, multi-sectored approach in order to address the complex dimension of the issue. It is a problem that violates the rights and dignity of the victims who are lured into this web, to which there is no way out.Human beings are being treated as a mere commodity and price tags are attached to their dignity. They are being sold in the market like any other commodities. They are abducted and exploited and often referred to as silent slaves. The governments and the Ngo’s can play a pivotal role in preventing the menace of human trafficking by implementing various policies and programs for the rescued victims and also generating awareness programs for the people in remote areas so that they do not fall prey into the web of human trafficking. Therefore, there is an urgent need to look into this problem.
