One of the worst violations of Human Rights is women and children trafficking. Trafficking mainly has taken place from less developed countries to economically advanced countries. Collection of data regarding trafficking is very difficult. Cross border trafficking for sex work through illegal migration has become a highly profitable demanding business and organized crime. It appears that every year about a million women and children are trafficked for various purposes, such as, to force them into working as labourer in various sectors, as domestic help and as prostitutes. The volume of sex trafficking is increasing day by day due to unprotected border control, bribe system and illegal migration. Trafficked women and children from countries like Bangladesh and Nepal are mostly brought into India. Objective of this paper is to focus upon the cross border trafficking and illegal migration. At the same time effect of trafficking for sex and its legal implications are also taken into consideration.
