Actor Mallika Sherawat, who is the ambassador of a relief organisation called India - Free A Girl, has penned an open letter expressing her concern for young girls who become victims of trafficking.

"My heart goes out to the 1.2 million girls held in many corners and cages of India’s brothels. If this is not shocking enough, it is shameful that all of them are way underage to even understand where they are. But with trafficking, abuse coupled with everyday torture, trafficked children as young as three years of age are forced into commercial sexual exploitation. India has the maximum number of underage sex workers in the world..." she writes.
