A general view of a residential area where domestic workers placement agencies are believed to be operating is pictured in New Delhi November 5, 2012. There are no reliable figures for how many people are trafficked for domestic servitude. The Indian government says 126,321 trafficked children were rescued from domestic work in 2011/12, a rise of almost 27 percent from the previous year. Activists say if you include women over 18 years, the figure could run into the hundreds of thousands. REUTERS/Mansi Thapliyal
