In Bangladesh, there are 60,000 -100,000 people in prostitution. Approximately 1 million men buy prostituted women and children in Bangladesh. 65 percent of 135 surveyed women and girls in brothels in Bangladesh were between age 11 and 13; 33 percent were between age 13 and 15. There are 15,000 to 20,000 children in street prostitution in Dhaka, most of whom are in prostitution before reaching 12 years of age. Bangladeshi women, who have been in prostitution, fear and risk being killed by their own families through honor-killings. The Tanbazar brothel in Narayanganj is a market for the sale of minor girls. At least 50 minors were kept hidden in the brothel, and when discovered, police did not attempt to help the girls imprisoned there or arrest the owners.
