Morena (MP), May 31 (PTI) Expressing concern over rising incidents of human-trafficking in Madhya Pradesh, Home Minister Uma Shankar Gupta today said the police have formed eight special squads to deal with the menace. “The rising incidents of human-trafficking in the state are a matter of concern. But the Government is committed to curb the menace in an effective way. The police have formed eight Anti-Human Trafficking squads for the purpose,” Gupta, who was here to take part in a Vaishya community programme, told PTI. He praised the Mandsaur Police for its exemplary work in the field of curing human-trafficking and ensuring release of over 200 girls from the captivity of a tribal community traditionally engaged in flesh trade. To a query on introducing Police Commissioner System in Madhya Pradesh as announced by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, he said necessary work is going on in this regard. By and large the state has been witnessing peace with no major problem on the law and order front. The Government had wiped out dacoits from the Chambal valley, he said. Gupta denied reports that persons from Vaishya community had migrated from Chambal region because of the fear of anti-social elements.
