HYDERABAD: The South Zone police on Sunday rescued two married women from a brothel in Dubai. Two agents in the old city of Hyderabad duped the women on the pretext of providing jobs to them in Dubai and collected money. After reaching Dubai, the agents sold the women to a brothel.
Police said, the victims are residents of the old city of Hyderabad but natives of Guntur district. The agents are Fatima and her son Imtiyaz, residents of Chandrayanagutta in the old city. Police registered criminal cases against them.
On November 19, the two married women approached Fatima and Imtiyaz at Chandrayanagutta for job opportunities in Dubai, and paid `80,000.
A week later, the agents took them to Dubai and provided them a sweeper’s job. “When the women refused to do sweeping, the agents forcibly sold the women to some brothel organisers in Dubai and returned here. One of the women fell ill, came here ten days ago and informed her family members of the happenings,” police said. Her family members then lodged a complaint with the police. Police took Fatima and her son Imtiyaz into custody and questioned them. During interrogation, the agents confessed that they had cheated the two women.
Police took the agents to Dubai and rescued the women. During the course of investigation, police found that the agents duped at least 25 women on the pretext of providing jobs in Dubai. At least 20 women from the old city are languishing in Dubai brothels.
