As the name suggests, transnational crimes are an organised crime that does not confine to geographical jurisdictions or intra-border but across the international border and became transnational problems. Transnational crime such as human trafficking seldomly caught the attention of the country and many times remains unnoticed due to its complex, sophisticated pattern of carrying out the activities. But the existence of such crime needs much more attention than ever because of an upsurge in the number of cases, especially in the state of Manipur. Prey of this crime extended to both adolescent male and female. The paper aims to addresses the prevalent illicit trafficking in the state of Manipur (a part of the North-eastern region of India) that is transnational, also the modus operandi and the plight of the victims. The paper will further highlight the root cause of the crime, the inadequate governance to mitigate the same and recommend the mode of weakening the network.I base a substantial part of the paper on the primary source such as personal interview.
