Itanagar, May 14: In the wake of the recent case of interstate trafficking and  prostitution racket involving minors in the state capital, various commissions have requested for stern action against those guilty and justice for the victims.
The Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Women (APSCW) today expressed shock and anguish over the sex trafficking of minor girls from the neighbouring state of Assam. 
It is also shameful to know that our own women and learned persons are involved in the case, it said. While appreciating the Itanagar Police for their commendable effort in apprehending the involved people and rescuing the minors, the Commission highly requested the state government and all concerned authorities to take stern action against culprits involved in this heinous crime. 
Further, the APSCW urged the concerned authorities to keep vigil on hotels, parlours or any suspicious areas in and around the twin capital city, so that no minor or other victims have to face such incidents in the future. 
Meanwhile, Chairperson Ratan Anya along with two other members Taba Champa Riba and Honluk Lukham of Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (APSCPCR) and Bamang Tago, Member of Arunachal Pradesh State Human Rights Commission (APSHRC) met Rohit Rajbir Singh, Superintendent of Police, Itanagar Capital Complex on Tuesday to get an update on the case.
The team highly appreciated the efforts of the Capital Police led by SP Singh in unearthing the inter-state trafficking and sex racket operating in the state capital. Ratan Anya stated that the instant case has shocked the entire state by the audacity of the offender to run such criminal activity without any fear of law and without any sympathy and remorse for the minor victims. She also stated that the Commission has taken the case very seriously and exhorted the police to leave no stone unturned in nabbing all the culprits involved in the case.
During the meeting, the Chairperson also requested the SP to conduct a thorough investigation within the stipulated time in order to ensure speedy trial of the case and to deliver justice to the aggrieved victims. 
The Commission hopes that the case is fastracked and all the offenders involved be awarded exemplary punishment in order to send a strong and clear message to the public to refrain from committing such similar act, Anya said. She further requested the Capital Police to assist in the documentation process during the filing of victim compensation for all the victims in the case.
The Commission also encouraged all concerned citizens to provide any confidential information to the Commission incase of witnessing the violation of child rights in and around their vicinity. Such nature of crime where the innocence of the children are sold like commodities without any fear of law can never be allowed to exist and thrive in a civilised society, Anya said.
Bamang Tago, also requested the SP to provide complete protection to the victims as this case involves extreme level of human rights violations.
