Hyderabad Police has arrested seven people from Bangladesh and West Bengal involved in a significant human trafficking and sex trade racket. The police cracked down the racket with the prime suspect from West Bengal under judicial custody.
The arrested Bangladeshis entered the country illegally and moved to different cities, with a small group advancing to the city as well. Those detained were initially residing in Mumbai before they moved to the city to organize the racket. On arrest, police seized around ten mobile phones, some cash, and many fake aadhar cards and other fake identifications.
Atiyar Mondal, the prime suspect from West Bengal, dragged a woman from Bangladesh for prostitution but told her that she would live a better life with a decent job opportunity in India. After successfully bringing in one woman from Bangladesh, Mondal started dragging in more and more women illegally, handed them illegal aadhar cards for identification, and made them part of the prostitution racket.
All these women were promised a stable job but got dragged into an inhuman trade, earning Mondal and his accomplices easy and big money. As Mondal's network grew, he found more local accomplices to help and track clients and had partners help him bring more women to the country.
Commissioner's Task Force made the arrest, with the assistance of the SR Nagar police, and the police seized a property used for illegal activities. While Mondal and six others are in police custody, detailed questioning is still happening, and the police are trying to locate the entire network that is suspected of spreading to few other cities.
