The dark hand of tech that stokes sex trafficking in India

Updated: Apr 14, 2021

25th February, 2019 | Farzana finally got through to her mother after three months. It was August 2017, and she was calling from a tiny room on GB Road in Delhi — one of India’s largest red-light districts. A regular client let her use his phone. Farzana didn’t want to tell her mother the truth of her situation. Instead, she told her that she was in Mumbai. That she was doing well.

(The real names of Farzana and the other victims of sex trafficking have not been used in this story to protect their identities.)
