5000 children go missing in 'Shining' India's capital every year

Latest 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. Many 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 which is just what is being reported to police or comes out in media, the real figure may be much bigger.
Having a loved one disappear takes a dreadful toll on families.But the answer is likely a grim one – most children who disappear in Delhi end up as sex workers or slaves. 

“The kids are kept in places where no one will be able to find them. They’re also kidnapped for the organ trade business, adoption and also for begging,” says R.S. Chaurasia, chairperson of the Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA), a non-governmental organization in India which campaigns against child labor, child trafficking and child servitude. 

The children are lured away from a poor neighborhood while they was playing. Many family members of missing people believe that they are ignored by police because they lack money or power, and many a times they are told that they have to pay a hefty fee(bribe) if they ever want to see their loved one again. 
Delhi police say that while they know they face a massive problem, things are getting better. 
In the past, as many as 18 children were going missing in Delhi every day. This year, that number is closer to ten. 
The situation in the capital of  "world's largest democracy" is getting worse with every sun setting but the 'democratic' media is completely silent on this issue, the same media which gives hours of its transmission to portray India as developing country while in reality, the poor is living a life of slightly better than animals.
