Child trafficking is considered as one of the ugliest crimes at global level where the sale and purchase of children takes place and they get treated as a commodity or chattel. This is the process of recruitment, transport, transfer of children who are below the age of 18 years for some immoral and illegal purposes. Trafficked children get exploited through various acts where they experience several pain and sufferings at places like brothel, factories etc., these traffickers, pimps force children into several unethical acts where they experience sexual, mental, physical and psychological pain. There are bundles of laws which are there to protect the interest of children and to deliver justice to the child victim. But, only the existence of such legislations is not enough to bring changes, so it is the responsibility of parents/guardians to educate their children as well as make them sufficient enough to take right decisions and not fall for any trap. There are numbers of reasons which either invite or parents or guardians willingly push them into this dirt due to unemployment, illiteracy, uneven economic conditions, poverty and other factors
