Freedom Firm deploys a team of undercover investigators who follow leads and monitor red light areas in Maharashtra and Karnataka, which are two states in central India that have a high incidence of sex trafficking.
Using hidden cameras, our investigators identify the minor victims as well as the brothel keepers, pimps, and traffickers, document the crime, and then submit this information to the police. With assistance from Freedom Firm, the police raid the brothels and rescue the girls, who are then placed in aftercare. The police arrest the perpetrators and file criminal complaints against them.
We report on each rescue or rescue attempt by sending out Real-Time Update emails. You can read about previous rescues by viewing the Real-Time Update archives. Click here to visit the Real-Time Update archive.
