Children become soft targets who fall prey to the clutches of these predators constantly in search of their prey. The Victims children encounter severe forms of exploitation, such as physical, sexual and emotional violence, abuse, torture and trauma, forced and bonded labour, forced marriages and practices like slavery etc. The cruelty and injustice faced by the victims of child trafficking often go beyond comprehension ; their lives scarred and beyond repair; deprived of rights.
