Abstract: Islamabad, Dec.30 (ANI): Smugglers in Pakistan reportedly earn about Rs.10 billion through human trafficking to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This year, according to The News, over 150,000 people have been sold to various Arab states, and well-placed sources have told the paper that thousands have been smuggled and sold during the last four years. They claimed that human trafficking victims are gathered in Karachi and delivered to inter-provincial agents, who take them to the Pakistan-Iran border at Mand Billo in Balochistan, from where they are deported to the UAE.
