However, 21,869 abduction cases of women and 8,056 cases of children were registered during the last three years, he said, adding 476 children were also reported missing 

Kataria said that campaigns such as 'Muskan', 'Smile' and 'Milap' were successful in finding the missing children.

Anti-human trafficking units were also constituted in all the districts to find the missing children.
