Social scientists and rights activists are of the view that the trend of social crimes, including trafficking of women and children, is on the rise in the country because of unethical use of mobile phone.

"Most of the crimes involving women-children trafficking and sexual harassment are taking place through mobile phones," Dhaka University Sociology Professor and Center for Women and Children Studies (CWCS) President Ishrat Shamim told BSS.

Mobile phones are being used for preliminary introduction, communication, giving false information and deception, she said and voiced a warning that the consequence of such use of mobile phones will be "very dangerous."
