“Love Sonia”, which follows the voyage of a young lady trafficked from rustic India in to the worldwide sex exchange, hits silver screens in the nation this week after screenings on the global celebration circuit.

Chief Tabrez Noorani said he needed to support “expectation and fearlessness” and bring issues to light of trafficking far and wide.

“I need to demonstrate that the wrongdoing of trafficking isn’t limited to, say, India or China. It’s a worldwide issue,” Noorani told the Thomson Reuters Foundation by telephone.

“Everybody must know … that it’s going on in their lawn,” he said.

India is home to no less than 8 million slaves, as indicated by the most recent figures from the Australian-based Walk Free Foundation.

Government figures demonstrate the nation recorded in excess of 8,000 human trafficking cases in 2016, 20 percent higher than the earlier year, in spite of the fact that rights activists say numerous cases go unreported.
