101 East investigates how every year, tens of thousands of girls and women in India are trafficked into slave marriages. 10 Nov 2016 23:05 GMT International Women's Day, India, Human trafficking, slavery Decades of sex selection favouring male babies have left some Indian states with vastly more men than women, creating a lucrative and growing market for traffickers. In the patriarchal and feudal state of Haryana where there's a shortage of women to marry, it's normal for men to buy young girls trafficked from other states. Known as "paros", a term implying they can be purchased, they are regularly raped, forced into marriages and made to work as bonded labour.
