India: human traffickers exploit teen victims of anti-Christian violence
Catholic World News - August 11, 2010
Teenage girls whose families were driven from their homes in India’s Orissa state by the anti-Christian violence of 2008 have been lured into New Delhi and sold as servants or pressured toward prostitution, the AsiaNews service reports. Human-rights workers secured the release of one such girl, but police declined to pursue charges against those who exploited them, according to the AsiaNews report.
