Up to 50 million girls are thought to be 'missing' over the past century due to female infanticide and foeticide, the report quoted a United Nation Population Fund study.

Some experts said the world's largest democracy was relatively forthcoming about describing its problems, possibly casting it in a darker light than if other countries were equally transparent about trafficking.

The report also stated that 44.5 per cent girls in India are married before the age of 18.
