It is estimated that 2 million children are exploited in the global commercial sex trade each year.

Young girls fetch the highest prices in the city brothels. The BBC’s Natalia Antelava spoke to an unnamed trafficker in Kolkata who said: “I traffic 150 to 200 girls a year, (and demand is rising) starting from age 10, 11 and older, up to 16, 17, making around 1,000 dollars per child.”
