RSCW against sex tourism in Rajasthan

Rajasthan State Commission for Women chairperson Laad Kumari Jain said that increasing sex tourism in the state is a matter of concern and that she was against granting legal status for sex tourism as is being mulled by NCW.

"Along with tourism, sex tourism is increasing in Rajasthan. This is growing along with industrialization, textile and marble business and illegal mining", Jain said at a press conference here.

She claimed that big hotels are also involved in sex trade to attract customers and minor girls are being supplied to foreign tourists at places like Jaisalmer and Pushkar.

"During our visit to red areas and interaction with sex workers, I found out that prostitution has flourished with the growth of tourism and other industries. The minor girls are being supplied to various places, including the Gulf countries, from here", she said.

The commission will soon prepare a detail report on this matter and will submit it to the state government and Center.
