Guwahati, March 27: Over 1,500 children have disappeared from Assam between 2011 and 2012, and most are now living in subhuman conditions somewhere in north India, as prostitutes, domestic helps or underage wives in women-starved states. According to the latest data of the State Crime Records Bureau, altogether 1,071 female and 494 male children have gone missing in Assam in 2011-2012, the highest in the Northeast.

The crime records also revealed that during this period, 965 missing children, including 283 male and 682 female, have been traced. This means that as on March 15, 2012, 211 male children and 389 female children have remained untraced in the state.

According to Unicef, a child victim of trafficking is “any person under 18 who is recruited, transported, transferred, harboured or received for the purpose of exploitation, either within or outside a country”.
