While prostitution is legal in India, the organized activities related to it such as organizing a brothel house or pimping are illegal. It is legal only if it is carried out in the private residence of the prostitute or the partner. Hence, the abuses done to these women are never reported and often does not get the attention it deserves. Everyone readily knows that prostitution has been carried out in a very organized manner in metro cities like Mumbai, Kolkata and Delhi, but illegally. Therefore, the crimes such as rape, molestation and even murders intended towards the prostitutes go unreported.
