The India Today article added that the IPC makes the following illegal: Here are some examples of countries where prostitution is legal: We met a sex worker on the street who crushed Gutka on her palms before she put it in her mouth to chew it. We told her how unhealthy this habit is, and she said, France: Prostitution is legal in France, although public advertising is still not allowed. At night, the street is a dangerous place for the uninitiated. Thefts, thefts of wallets, watches and phones, and other crimes occur frequently. A police officer on duty was stabbed to death by assailants shortly after midnight in September 2012 when a group of police officers tried to rescue a man from a gang of criminals who had ambushed and stabbed him in the street as he was returning home from work. [12] [13] The G.B. Garstin Bastion Road (officially changed to Swami Shradhanand Marg in 1966) is a road leading from Ajmeri Gate to Lahori Gate in Delhi, India. It`s a big red light district. [1] There are several hundred multi-storey brothels and it is estimated that there are over 1000 sex workers. [2] It is lined with two- or three-story buildings that have shops on the ground floor. About twenty of these buildings have about 100 brothels on the first floor that open at night after the ground floor shops close.

It is the largest red light district in Delhi. [3] The streets and houses at the end of the street are residential areas. Germany: Prostitution is legalized and there are real state brothels. Workers have health insurance, have to pay taxes and even receive social benefits such as pensions. “Whenever there is a raid on a brothel, as voluntary sex work is not illegal and only the operation of the brothel is illegal, the sex workers involved should not be arrested or punished, harassed or harassed. With the Supreme Court`s support for the legalization of sex workers, a debate has erupted over whether Indian laws should be changed to reduce the humiliation and harassment faced by sex workers across the country. While there is no doubt that these women are suffering, the men on the street had a different story to tell. They told us that the police never listened to “these prostitutes” (they should have seen the disgust on her face) because they deserved it. One of these men said: The old city of Delhi, Shahjahanabad, was surrounded by a wall. The wall had many gates and bastions.

A bastion is an angular structure protruding from the curtain wall of an artillery fortification. It is called “Burj” in Arabic and Urdu. One of these burjs or bastion was named after a British officer of the East India Company. The history of G.B. Road dates back to Mughal times. It is said that there were five red-light districts or kothas (brothels) in Delhi at that time. Then came the British Raj, when a British commissioner Garstin Bastion consolidated the five kothas into an area on this route. [4] The street now has about 100 brothels. Along with Kamathipura (Mumbai), Sonagachi (Kolkata) and Chaturbhuj Sthan (Muzaffarpur), G.B Road has one of the few red-light districts in India. The place also contains thousands of prostitution rooms or kothas.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11] Some older, out-of-shape prostitutes try to recruit customers on the first floor, but their cries of “jaanu” and “darling” are usually ignored. Despite their young age, each child knows their place in the community.

In fact, there is already some form of power play among children. The child of a Kotha owner tends to show a sense of superiority and act with more confidence and dominance when playing with the children of sex workers. As children grow, this hierarchical relationship is likely to persist or become even more important as each person assumes the role passed down from their parents. As a result, it is difficult for these children to break out of the vicious circle in which they were born. Familiarity with their childhood playground and learned identities hold them back, telling them that the only way in life is to follow in the footsteps of the adult role models they grew up with. The streets and houses at the end of the street are residential. The India Today article adds that the IPC makes the following illegal: There are about 70 to 80 brothels or kothas (rooms) along G.B. Prostitution is not illegal in our country, but advertising and public prostitution are.

Owning a brothel is also illegal, but since places like GB Road already exist, these laws are rarely enforced. The section of road leading from Ajmeri Gate in the south to the small intersection with a road to Farash Khana in the north has shops on the ground floor and kothas or brothels on the first and second floors. A Supreme Court panel was formed in 2011 to investigate the status of sex workers in the country. Last year, they recommended that sex work be legally recognized in India to empower women who live a life of eternal humiliation. The street is famous as a market for machinery, auto parts, hardware and tools and is the largest market for these items in the National Capital Region. The street is crowded with vehicles and people during the day as it is a commercial area. (a) Sex workers enjoy the same legal protection. There are kothas, which are mainly aimed at women from the Northeast, who have a lighter skin color and can therefore reach a higher price. It`s also an open secret that G.B. Road`s most famous Kotha offers virgin girls. This Kotha is also the most expensive.
