New Delhi: The National Commission for Women (NCW) on Saturday April 2 launched an anti-human trafficking cell to improve effectiveness in tackling cases of human trafficking, raise awareness among women and girls, build capacity and train anti-trafficking units, and improve law enforcement agencies’ responsiveness.

“The Cell has been set up with an aim of increasing awareness among law enforcement officials and facilitating their capacity building. The Cell will conduct gender sensitization training and workshops in combating human trafficking for police officers and for prosecutors at regional, state and district level,” stated the press release.

It further stated that the complaints related to human trafficking received by the Commission will be addressed by this cell.

The Commission has observed that some of the major issues faced in combating trafficking include lack of rehabilitation for victims and insensitive attitude towards trafficked survivors and their families. Therefore, the Cell will improve monitoring mechanism and encourage government agencies regarding measures being adopted for prevention of trafficking and rehabilitation of victims, the Ministry said.

The Cell will improve monitoring mechanism and encourage government agencies regarding measures being adopted for prevention of trafficking and rehabilitation of victims, stated the press release.
