The Crime Investigation Department (CID) recently rescued four television artistes from Goa who were allegedly sexually exploited. The police said that they were being engaged by the party organizers on the pretect of hosting entertainment programmes. The CID told the media that not just these three but many television artistes of Telugu industry meted out the same kind of treatment in Goa, Bangalore and even in Gulf countries.
The women protection cell (of CID) SP, Kalpana Naik told the media that ther recent case of four women, who were taken to Goa, came to their notice after an NGO complained that these girls were exploited for sexual favours. She said the artistes were brought back from Goa and sent to rehabilitation centre.
She has also said that most of these women were junior artistes and the exploiters apparently needn't train them as to how to dance. In fact, a few months back father allegedly tried to force his daughter to send to dance clubs in gulf countries. Girl's mother approached the police and the girl was rescued. This took place in a village near Sri Kalahasthi of Chittoor district. In fact, the same father already sent his elder daughter to Gulf (although she was a minor) by getting a passport with fake date of birth, she added.
Meanwhile, the officials said that traffickers target women who face critical financial situation and who will be in deliberate need of cash. The officials said such girls will be lured that they would be provided good jobs in Gulf countries and finally sell them off.
