Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on Wednesday said that the Government is planning to set up anti-trafficking cells in states and would formulate a national plan for strict action against human trafficking in the country.

"The Home ministry has formed a nodal cell through which it is coordinating on matters relating to trafficking in human beings with other ministries and state governments," he added.
