A man has been arrested in Hyderabad for allegedly forcing his paramour's minor daughter into flesh trade, police said on Saturday.

"The accused, identified as Govind, had an extra-marital affair with a woman and they had a daughter. Before the affair, the woman had another daughter," Banjara Hills Police Station Inspector S Santosh said.

"Govind allegedly forced his paramour's first daughter into flesh trade and had been earning money out of it for the past several months. He also used to beat her," the Inspector said.

The girl had gone missing last year and was traced.

She again went missing on January 3, after which her mother lodged a complaint.

"The victim was traced on Friday and she claimed to be 17-years-old. Her age is being verified and she has been sent for medical examination," Santosh said.

On the basis of the girl's complaint, the accused was arrested on Friday and a case registered under relevant sections of the IPC, police said, adding that an investigation was on.
