Earlier this year, a 24 year old trafficking victim testified against two perpetrators via video call from Bangladesh. This landmark testimony was one of the first of its kind in an Indian court and led to the conviction of the two perpetrators, on the 31st March 2016.
The victim had been brought from Bangladesh to Mumbai under false pretenses and later sold in a lodge. After being rescued by Nagpada police, she was then safely repatriated to Bangladesh.
