Published: 16th Dec, 2022

Ramesh Kumar was promoted to the position of senior superintendent of police (SSP), in the West Bengal division, seeing his work and dedication. After working for a few months, he came to know that there are several districts of West Bengal bordering Bangladesh, involved in the Trafficking of poor girls/women for surrogacy from India to Bangladesh. As the recent laws in India for surrogacy got stringent, the cross-border trafficking for surrogacy increased. He also comes across the information that medical officers and doctors in the districts are also involved in the crime. After these instances, he started searching for data on surrogacy and related crimes in his area of jurisdiction.  He later found that Women when comes back to India, suffers from nutrition deficiencies and health related issues. After being indulge in Trafficking, they face exploitation from local middlemen who use them for their illegal activities by threatening them of life.  Due to lack of literacy among women and job opportunities in the area, they are forced into the vicious cycle of poverty. Ramesh found that due to porous borders, it gets difficult for administration to identify the culprits. Further, the patriarchal society dominant in most parts of the region makes the surrogate women exposed to future challenges like societal stigma, being considered not fit for marriage, and other biases.

Discuss the following with reference to this case:

  • Ethical issues involved as an administrator to address the problems associated with women in the area.
  • What should be the steps taken by Ramesh to curb the illegal activities prevalent in the region and help women against exploitation?

Verifying, please be patient.
