IMPHAL, March 26 - The number of victims of human trafficking worldwide has reached an appalling 30 million and 11.9 million of them are from the Asia Pacific region alone, Manipur High Court Chief Justice Rakesh Ranjan Prasad said on Saturday.

Delivering his speech during a judicial seminar on human trafficking at Manipur High Court auditorium here, Justice Prasad also said the service providers take such victims to other countries and seize their passports and later make them victims of forced labour.

�These victims are trapped in jobs after they are chained to their place of employment where they are not paid,� Prasad said.

The Chief Justice stressed on the importance of registration by service providers with the concerned authorities across the world. He said every individual need to join in the fight against human trafficking worldwide.

Justice N Kotiswar Singh and Justice Kh Nobin Singh of High Court of Manipur and Justice Anu Malholtra of Delhi High Court were present at the seminar jointly organised by Manipur Judicial Academy, Manipur State Legal Services Authority and Manipur Commission for Child Rights.
