The city police arrested a gang of four involved in women trafficking and rescued five girls here on Wednesday. The police also launched a manhunt for the other gang members who are at large. DSP Lavanya Naik told mediamen that Gorre Samba aka Sabita of Autonagar, Kataria Pradeep of Vivekananda Colony and Attari Vijay of Pochamma Maidan in Warangal and Sanjay Durgi of Gautamnagar in Chandrapur (Maharashtra) were luring young girls with job offers and forcibly engaging them in flesh trade in Mumbai. A team of special police kept a vigil against the gang for some time now after they rescued a girl from a brothel at Chandrapur in the neighbouring Maharashtra state. The girl’s parents filed a missing report with the Intezarganj police in April. During investigation, the police found out that she was cheated in the name of love by one Vijay, who sold her off in the red light area of Mumbai. Upon rescuing, the girl revealed the details of the gang and said four more girls from the city were similarly engaged in flesh trade in Mumbai.
