Ziro, May 14: The Apatani Women Association Ziro (AWAZ) has strongly condemned the recent case of human trafficking of minors and sexual racket busted in the state capital. Thanking the capital police for the commendable act, AWAZ said that the case should be dealt with utmost priority and sensitivity. ‘The recuperation and rehabilitation of the victims should be administered innocuously in a safe environment,’ stated AWAZ. 
For benefit of victims of such unfortunate mishaps, AWAZ urged the need for creation of a dedicated special cell to register the complaints of the victims with 24X7 helpline number and assistance, trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy centre, legal aid and counselling centre, and conducting gender sensitization programmes at regular intervals.
Stating that the said infrastructure and facilities can be suitably accommodated at the newly inaugurated AWAZ office near the District Secretariat, general secretary Leegang Ania said the association would soon approach the local legislator and the District Administration to facilitate the creation of the mentioned facilities which would go a long way in building a safer place for women in Lower Subansiri District.
