From the early centuries traffic in slave was as important feature of Coochbehar trade. Slave trade was prevalent in Coochbehar from very ancient times. There were many market centers where slaves were sold openly. The slaves were used for household affairs, prostitution, to work in temples, to fight in the battlefield and also for many other purposes. The elites kept slaves to show their status. It is quite evident that indebtedness was one of the major causes of increase of slavery in Coochbehar. Ultimately this evil practice was abolished from Coochbehar in 1864.
