Inquiring into the recent rescue of hundreds of children trafficked from the NE states and housed in Homes illegally run by pastors in the southern states,the NCPCR found that girls were even asked to give massage to the directors of these Homes and molested.In a detailed report,the NCPCR said insurgency coupled with the absence of government officials at the block level to address the education,health and developmental problems had made the entire North-east an easy hunting ground for middlemen to lure out children from parents.

All-out effort are being made by pastors and other category of persons who are reaching out to source areas through middlemen for getting children in order to obtain financial support from churches within the country or donations from outside, the NCPCR said in response to a direction from the SC to inquire into the incidents. The source areas for the pastors are Tamnglong,Senapati,Chandel,Bishnupur,Churachandpur and Imphal in Manipur,North Cachar Hills in Assam and Meghalaya.The destination states are TN,Karnataka,AP and Kerala.The main reason for children being sent out by the poor parents to far off places is their high expectation of quality education which is not available at their own places, it said. The other main reasons for the parents agreeing to send their children far away were no easy access to schools;lack of basic infrastructure such as road connectivity,power and hospitals;insurgency and lack of a sense of security among parents to send children walking to schools;poor financial status;and absence of governance in the block level to address education,health and developmental problems. Mostly these children who are brought to TN and Karnataka are put in Tamil and Kannada-medium schools for study.It is not easy for them to have education in the languages which are not spoken in their states, it said. The NCPCR asked the Union HRD ministry to supply data about the number of schools and hostels in the North-east currently occupied by the armed forces.It also said the ministry must ensure that the para-military forces vacate the schools and hostels occupied by them and submit an action taken report within two months to the SC.
