    IMPHAL, July 13: The non-legislation of an effective law on human trafficking is a major factor for rampant cases of child trafficking in the state, said child rights activist Athokpam Chinglemba at the closing function of a three-day training programme on human trafficking organized by Churachandpur District Police at Tuibong Community Hall, Churachandpur.
    Chinglemba further maintained that the failure of government schools to provide good education to the economically underprivileged people is a major factor for child trafficking in the state. Many children have been trafficked to other states with the false promise of giving free education and even jobs.
    He noted that the collective effort of the social welfare department, police and child rights NGOs will help to curb child trafficking in the state. Moreover, the government should be able to provide rehabilitation to those children rescued from the hands of the traffickers, added Chinglemba.
    Various police officers and VDF personnel of Churachandpur Police attended the training programme.
