The applicant stated that the laborers were being held by force by Pathan. They were not allowed to move freely. They were deprived of their wages, salaries, and prevented to go to city for even medical treatment. According to them, two armed guards were deployed by the owners who were keeping check on the detainees.

Despite claims by the countries that slavery does not exist different forms of slaveries still survive and supported by the system and state institutions. However, not permitted by the law.

RightsNow Executive Director Ali Palh says bonded labor at farms, brick kilns and child labor are worse forms of slaveries. Neither national law nor international allows it. It exist and survives.

He quotes the definition of forced labor that “All work or service which is exacted from any person under the menace of any penalty and that penalty can be in the form of physical violence, economical loss etc.
