It is estimated that 2 million children are exploited in the global commercial sex trade each year. One UNICEF report estimates that India supplied 50% of the children worldwide entering into the sex trade. It is estimated that a child goes missing in India every 8 minutes. 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.”
