‘Kid’napped
Kidnapping – a daily affair...
09/08/2007

May be the days of horrors have come to an halt, but the nights still experience horrendous crimes in the hinterland of war ravaged nations.

One such place is Congo, where militias, still, kidnap girls living in villages & on outskirts of cities. The situation has touched its peak in cities of Uganda where more than 10,000 children are still missing & many more are in the captivity. The kidnapped children (about 25,000) are brutalised, made to murder & to abduct other children, used as sex slaves & also gifted as mistresses to militia commanders. Back home, more than 3,196 cases of kidnapping & abduction of children took place in 2004 (NCRB figure), with UP topping the chart with 23% of total kidnappings. Often these kidnapped kids are used in sex movies & prostitution. In USA, about 10% of missing children end up being traded for an amount of $30,000 each only. All the big talks of globally integrated economy & digital age fall flat when the fact remains that kidnapping has become a vibrant source of employment & a parallel economy too. Either we take steps to wage a war against it or else shamelessly factor in this too in the next round of calculation of the economies because it seems that in today’s world, money is all that speaks!
