I am writing to make a data access request about the number of sex workers held at CSD institutions. May I know, in each of the years between 2010-20:

a) the inmate and detainee population on 31 December of each year and of those how many are sex workers

b) yearly admittances of inmates and detainees and of those how many are sex workers

If a CSV or Excel format is possible, I would greatly appreciate it.

Yours faithfully,

Surabhi Chopra
