Prashant Dubey, a social activist, who is fighting against child trafficking, says agents in the city receive demands from Rajasthan for brides after which they lure the family of the girl and sell them.
Surprisingly, it is happening in a state, which has 24 anti-human trafficking units with an annual budget of more than Rs 7 lakh per unit. But still 24 children go missing from MP every day. The number of missing girls is double the number of boys, going State Crime Record Bureau (SCRB) statistics.
In last 10 years, more than 80,000 children went missing in the state. Of these, 82% children were traced. But, 18% are still missing. Traffickers are largely targeting tribal-dominated districts in the state for human trafficking. Tribal districts have maximum number of cases of girls trafficking.
Bharti Sharma, former chairperson of CWC, says, "In every six months, more than 50 children in an age group of 9-12 from Madhya Pradesh are rescued from Delhi. These children are sold by traffickers to agents in Delhi, who send them as domestic help or labourers in small scale industries."
"These children are exploited to the core. They are made to work 16-18 hours every day. They are not given food and beaten up every day. Sometimes, they are sexually assaulted. They are not paid for work," Sharma said

Why Sirmaur brides in demand
- The skewed sex ratio in Haryana
- Girls are more inclined towards education
- Educated girls don't find matches and number of inter-state marriages is on the rise
Why girls eye Haryana grooms
- Better living standards in Haryana vis-a-vis tough conditions in Sirmaur
- Prevalence of chunni pratha in plains which means no expenditure in wedding
- Dearth of suitable grooms
Life is easy in Haryana as landholdings are big and farming is mechanised, says a local dhaba owner Jagat in the remote Ronhat village in Shillai.

She was molested by a vagabond who later kidnapped her at knifepoint and sold her to a woman in north west Delhi. The woman was involved in child trafficking and selling girls to her clients who often look for minor girls for marriage, police said on Saturday.
On Friday, she was rescued by a team from Kotwali police station in north Delhi.
The girl had managed to escape from the custody of the child traffickers and alert police with the help of a passerby. She narrated her ordeal to the man, who then called the police control room.
At the instance of the girl, three persons, including a woman, have been arrested. Currently, police are looking for two of their accomplices.
Additional Commissioner of Police (North) Brijendra Kumar Yadav said the girl was produced before the child welfare committee, where her statement was recorded before being handed over to an NGO for counseling.
In her statement, the girl said that she lived with her parents, both labourers, in outer Delhi’s Rohini. Ten days ago, she fled from the house over being scolded by her parents.
After leaving home, the girl went to Chandni Chowk in central Delhi and started earning her livelihood as a ragpicker. Since she had no place to live, the girl started to sleep on pavements outside Old Delhi railway station.
On Monday night, the girl was sleeping on the pavement when a vagabond, identified as Nasir, attempted to rape her. He fled when the girl raised an alarm. Nasir returned with two accomplices – Punjabi and Raja – on Tuesday night and kidnapped the girl at knifepoint in an auto-rickshaw.
“They took her to Hasina’s house at Wazirpur JJ Colony in north west Delhi. Hasina kept the girl in confinement for two days and took Rs 1,500 as token money from a client who wished to marry the girl,” Yadav added.
Won trust, fled
When the girl realised that she was in trouble, she convinced Hasina that she would marry her client and this helped her win Hasina’s trust. On Friday, she somehow escaped from Hasina’s house and sought help from a passerby who in turn called police.
On the basis of her complaint, a case under Indian Penal Code and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act was filed and police arrested Hasina, Nasir and Raja, while Punjabi and Hasina’s client are still at large.
Further probe into the case revealed that this was the second time that the girl fled from her home. While her parents had filed her missing complaint the first time, they did not even bother to approach police this time.
