Indian Police Uncover Sex Smuggling Ring – Airport Official Arrested

The Hindu newspaper in India has reported that 4 people have been arrested in connection with a sex racket. Among the accused is Raju Mathew, a sub-inspector at the immigration wing of the Nedumbassery airport.

The group offered girls a job to travel to the Persian Gulf, paying Rs.25,000 (approx. US$455), and flew them out using fake passports.

According to the prosecution, the woman from Kazhakuttam in Thiruvananthapuram travelled on a fake passport and after reaching Dubai, landed in a sex racket network in the Gulf. She then returned to Mumbai using a forged passport.

The article states several times that this is a case of human trafficking, though it does not indicate that the women who were sent to the Gulf were coerced or under-age.
