Especially vulnerable are the districts of West Bengal which border with Bangladesh and Nepal. These areas are the transit points for the traffickers and children from the remote villages are usually the prime targets. The state level advocacy event recently took place at Hotel Hindustan International in the presence of eminent personalities like Sabyasachi Chakraborty, Sudeshna Roy, Usha Ganguly, Dr. Rinchen Chophel, Roshni Sen, P. M. Nair and Ashish Damle.
