On Tuesday, the Union Home Ministry responded to many matters in the Lok Sabha. This includes the sending of minor girls and women to the Gulf country by human traffickers, infiltration and assault cases after the removal of Article 370 in Kashmir and the killing of non-Kashmiri civilians in Jammu and Kashmir. First, the Ministry of Home Affairs said in the Lok Sabha on the report of kidnapping and trafficking of women and adolescents in Gulf countries, "Incidents of large scale abduction of women and adolescent girls and their trafficking in Gulf countries have not come to the notice of the Government of India. However, sometimes reports from Indian Missions abroad indicate that some Indian women (Immigration Cleanses) want employment abroad without permission to migrate, especially in Gulf countries. Such women are exposed to various employment-related problems.
