Human Trafficking has been a big problem in the course of human existence. There is a long history of human exploitation in every culture and also has evolved in terms of its mechanism especially in the third world. These mechanisms of new age slavery are always not identified easily for the nature of human trafficking itself is very silent and secretive. Poverty has become the main reason for such activity; desperation of men and women and sometimes children, to provide for their needs pushes them to enter such situation.
