The Crime Branch CID on Thursday arrested a mother and four others for forcing her daughter into prostitution in a guest house in Kovalam near Mahabalipuram, according to TOI.
Police arrested the girl’s mother Saira Banu, another woman named Fathima, guest house manager Senthil and room attendants Jayaraj and Mahendran.
Due to a Madras High court directive on behalf of the girl, the arrest was carried out by the anti-trafficking cell. A magistrate court sent them all to jail.
It was revealed in the investigation that the girl was rescued from a sex racket in October 2014 and was sent to a private home for juveniles. The girl ran away from there with a woman who promised her a job and later forced her back into prostitution, according to TOI.
