Shilpi Singh is known as the “lady Singham” in the Seemanchal region of north Bihar, one of the worst areas for women trafficking and rape. Despite numerous threats of violence, kidnapping, and murder, Shilpi has not deviated from her path of rescuing women victims of violence and trafficking. In her work, Shilpi has come across numerous stories of exploitation, including one of a 16-year-old girl who had been sold into prostitution after being married off at the age of 13. Through counseling and training, Shilpi has helped the girl rebuild her life and start earning a livelihood.
Seemanchal, which comprises four districts in Bihar, is the hub of women trafficking, with the average per capita district GDP of the region being just Rs 10,000. The average literacy rate of the four districts is 54 percent as against Bihar’s average of 64 percent, and the area has seen an increase in human trafficking cases, with Bihar ranking second in crimes against women in India. Despite this, Shilpi has rescued and rehabilitated 250 women who were trafficked and forced into the flesh trade in the last 22 years. She has also rescued almost 1,900 minor girls from child marriages.
Shilpi’s courage is inspired by her father, who started an NGO named Bhoomika Vihar that works towards helping the poor and marginalized, especially the Maha Dalits, in Bihar. Shilpi, who is the eldest of three siblings, began working with her father while she was still in college, and even after completing her MBA from Patna, she continued to work towards the cause. After her father passed away in 2013, Shilpi took over his work and has been leading the organization since then.
According to Shilpi, the trafficking gangs have sleeper cells in villages that scout for potential victims, mostly from poor families with young girl children. The sleeper cell members pass on information about families to the gangs, who then pose as friends or relatives of the sleeper cell members. They come to stay with the families and spread the word that they are looking for a bride. They appear well-to-do and approach the poor families saying they have a lot of money and the girls will be very happy. The parents think they will be rid of one mouth to feed and will also get some money in exchange for the girl. The girl thinks she will escape poverty into a life of comfort. This makes them willing lambs to the slaughter.
Bhoomika Vihar has a wide network of NGOs in Bihar that provide them with information about trafficking, child marriages, or domestic violence. Acting on this information, a team from Bhoomika Vihar reaches the spot and rescues the victims with the help of the local police. Shilpi has a team of 70 dedicated young men and women who admire her and want to follow in her footsteps.
Shilpi’s work has not been without danger. She has received scores of threats of violence, kidnapping, and murder but has not let them deter her from her path. Shilpi’s work has helped numerous women victims of violence and trafficking and has given them a second chance at life.

Bihar is a state in India where women are often trafficked to work in northern Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and parts of Rajasthan. Many of these women are either forced to work for less money or are sexually exploited. However, the most hidden form of trafficking is bride trafficking. The Seemanchal region of Bihar reports the highest number of cases of trafficking and rape of women. In 2021, 17,950 cases of crime against women were reported in Bihar as compared to 15,359 in 2020.
Despite these alarming statistics, Shilpi Singh, the director of Bhoomika Vihar, is working tirelessly to rescue women from this situation. Since 2002-2003, she has helped thousands of girls, sent 1050 girls to school, stopped the marriage of 1890 girls, and removed more than 200 girls from prostitution. Shilpi credits her father, Arun Kumar Singh, who established Bhumika Vihar, for her passion for this work. She believes that her upbringing prepared her to be a soldier in the fight against trafficking.
Shilpi notes that marriage is considered a sacred sacrament in India but crimes are committed in its guise. Bride trafficking involves marrying a girl by persuasion or by offering a good home, job, or money and then selling her or forcing her into prostitution. Shilpi has rescued many girls from such false marriages and picked them up from the mandap. She believes that educating girls is the key to preventing trafficking and urges people to question the expenses associated with dowry and prioritize their daughter's education.
Shilpi has faced numerous threats of violence, kidnapping, and murder for her work, but she remains undaunted. She acknowledges that trafficking is an unorganized crime and a multi-billion dollar business, but breaking the networks of brokers is crucial to ending it. Shilpi draws courage from the love and respect that the girls she has rescued show her. She considers them her "Horlicks and Born Vita" and vows to continue working for them.
Bihar is known for trafficking women to work in other states of India, where they are often exploited sexually or made to work for low wages. Bride trafficking is the most hidden form of this crime, where girls are married off and then sold or forced into prostitution. Shilpi Singh is a hero fighting against this menace, and her dedication to this cause has earned her recognition as a finalist for the Thomas Reuters Foundation Stop Slavery Hero Award and one of India's Top 50 Women Leaders for the Women Lead India Fellowship by Vital Voice and Reliance Foundation.
