Highway Prostitution

By shivam → Saturday, 4 February 2017
In India, prostitution (the exchange of sexual services for money) is legal, but a number of related activities, including soliciting in a public place, kerb crawling, owning or managing a brothel, prostitution in a hotel, child prostitution, pimping and pandering, are crimes. Prostitution is legal only if carried out in private residence of a prostitute or others . But many brothels illegally operate in many Indian cities including Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata 

 Although India is one of the fastest growing developing country today, but still, there are some dark corners in this country, that are lagging behind, with the present time. They are alienated from the modern world and the lack of education is one of the prime reason for that.Prostitution is a profession that has been into existence since ages. If we turn the pages of history, then, it will become evident that many courtesans used to be the muses of the erstwhile kings. But, with the passage of time, this profession has undergone a lot of transformation. In some parts of India, prostitution is still considered as a main source of family income, in the guise of superstitious social traditions. Most of the women, who chose this profession, willingly or forcibly, either hail from poor economic and financial background or they are dragged into this profession due to age-old traditions, to support the livelihood. Let's take a look at four places in India, where this dark profession is practiced as an open secret, and families feel no shame in telling that their daughters, sisters are into this profession.

An investigation into the murder later revealed a lesser-known practice that exists in Telangana’s villages: Truck-stop prostitution. Young women from poor  families wait by national highways and major truck terminals and parking areas for truck drivers to pick them up. Trucks coming halt at the terminals and parking areas in various districts and the drivers use the “services” of these women.This is a little story that tells a bit about highway prostitution...
When Venkatamma had passed out after drinking toddy near the graveyard, the duo poured kerosene over her and burnt her alive. Narsamma was a close relative of the victim.

The two were natives of Anantharam and Karankote villages but spent most of their time by the highways, waiting to get picked up. Police said they were addicted to alcohol and are desperate for money.

“The truck terminal in Tandur is spread across four acres. More than 100 trucks on long-distance routes halt there everyday. Women sex workers from nearby villages wait near the road. Tandur police often book cases and rehabilitate them,” said Ranga Reddy SP Rema Rajeswari.

Truck traffic is high in Tandur. Similarly, Suryapet of Nalgonda, Sanga Reddy in Medak and places in Mahbubnagar, Adilabad, Khammam and Nizamabad, where national highways pass through are where truck drivers pick up village women.

“When we find such a woman on road, we warn her. If she repeats it, we book a case for creating public nuisance,” an official from Miryalaguda subdivision of Nalgonda police said.  

Senior police officials say this is not organised prostitution. Women who are in dire need of money come from their village to the roads.   

“I spend 15 to 20 days on the road, driving continuously. It gets lonely. Sometimes, when I see these sex workers, I stop and take their service,” said a 42-year-old truck driver from Thane, Maharashtra who frequently passes by Sangareddy.
