The Indian Community Welfare Organisation (ICWO) today launched an 'Anti-pimp' drive to commemorate 'International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illegal Trafficking.' Talking to newspersons here, ICWO Secretary A J Hariharan said "it is estimated about one lakh people comprising mostly women and children are being trafficked every year in the country.

"If traffickers are reduced, we can easily prevent children and women from being pushed in prostitution.

"As the first initative, through our constant motivation and sensitisation ten women pimps and brokers have decided to give up their profession." Mr Hariharan said the ICWO would also try to give a fresh lease of life to these pimps by providing training in various fields.

"According to our survey, there are about 150 full time and 4,000 partime brokers across the city. "We will try to make them change their profession during this year." Later, in a symbolic gesture, the women pimps and brokers burnt their personal diaries containing details of clients, sex workers nd other pimps. They also took an oath to campaign against trafficking.
