Police today claimed to have busted an international human trafficking racket being operated from Musheerabad here by arresting four persons, including three Bangladeshis, for allegedly tricking as many compatriot women into prostitution.
Acting on a tip-off, Commissioner’s Task Force (North Zone) Team raided a building at Bapuji Nagar and apprehended three Bangladeshi nationals — Shamim Hossain, Raj Mondal, and one Bangladeshi woman — who were running the prostitution racket, police said, adding they also picked up one customer from West Bengal — Bapi Ghosh.
To earn easy money, the Bangladeshi woman, who earlier worked as a sex worker, hatched a plan with Hossain to run a brothel business with the help of Mondal and in the process they brought three Bangladeshi women aged between 14-25 years and pushed them into flesh trade, police said.
“All the three rescued sex workers are Bangladeshi nationals and have been brought to India for human trafficking. They are staying illegally at Hyderabad without any valid passport or visa,” they said.According to police, Mondal opened a clinic at Charminar and was attracting customers in the garb of treating various sexual diseases and they were seduced and sent to their prostitution business.Mondal, who posed as a “doctor”, did not hold any official degree in allopathy, ayurveda, unani or homeopathy, they said.During interrogation, it further came to light that the Bangladeshi accused took help of some brokers on porous Indo- Bangladesh border to give passage to sex workers into India, a police department release claimed.
