Team to probe missing cases of women

The cops want to investigate about the possible existence of an organised human trafficking in the district.

According to police records, 343 women are missing from January 2010 to April 2011. Out of which 271 women have been traced and another 72 are still at large. Of the total 343, 167 women are above 18 years of age.  Among them cops have successfully traced 136 women.
As many as 83 minor girls  were reported missing during the same period, out of which 74 have been traced.

The missing cases are not only reported in city, but also in the taluks of Holenarasipur, Channarayapatna and Arakalgud.

If teens go missing it is attributed to love cases. But the missing of married women is strange. Recently, a 35-year-old woman went missing, leaving behind her husband and was later found in Bangalore. The interrogation revealed that she wanted to stay with her paramour.

A SSLC student had gone missing from Hiresave six months ago and later she was found in a garment shop in Bangalore.

She revealed that she was not interested in studies the reason which forced her to take that step. “On many occasions, parents will be knowing the whereabouts of their wards, but they will file missing case just for the sake of prestige”. A sociologist opined that girls live in an illusion. They go behind money for realising their dreams. Another reason for it has been pressure from parents on their wards.

The parents should be cautious especially during announcement of results, he added.
