Border Monitoring Station Data – Nepal
The border between Nepal and India might as well be non-existent. Thousands of people cross back and forth between the two countries every day as casually as you walk from store to store in a mall. The informality of crossing the border from Nepal into India is an opportunity not lost on traffickers. They count on the sheer number of people crossing to cloak their true intentions of selling the girls that they have kidnapped, bought or lured with the promise of a job.
Traffickers have not, however, taken into account the expertise of those working for The Peace Rehabilitation Center ( P.R.C.) and their ability to spot them, detain them, and have them arrested as they rescue these girls.
