India’s Black hole: A bleak fate for Delhi’s vanishing children

Russian Television: Frightening statistics from Delhi’s police have revealed that 13 children go missing in the city each day. Many end up as slaves or are forced to work in the sex industry in a city which is now India’s undisputed kidnapping capital.

With almost 17 million people packed into its crowded city streets, New Delhi is the perfect place for people to get lost.

But some are never found again.  They simply disappear.

That is what happened to Rao Kumar’s 12 year old son, Ravi.
He went missing one year ago when he left the house to get his bicycle, and never returned.

“I don’t know who took my son away. I looked for him everywhere but did not find him,” says Rao Kumar, the father of the missing child.

And Ravi is far from the only one.

In Delhi alone, anywhere from 2-5,000 children go missing every year, while in India as a whole, a staggering 800,000 disappear.
