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 girlâ€™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.
