Dubai, Jun 6 (UNI) Two Indian workers were arrested for keeping three women locked up in a flat against their will and threatening to kill them if they refused to work as prostitutes.
A policeman, who posed as a pleasure seeker, contacted one of the two Indian suspects yesterday, who took him to a villa where the girls from Bangladesh were kept. The policeman freed the girls and arrested the men.
The Public Prosecution charged the Indian workers, both in their twenties, with keeping three Bangladeshi housemaids, against their will in the villa, assaulting them, and forcing them to work in prostitution. They were charged with running the villa as a brothel.
The suspects pleaded innocent before a Dubai court. One of the maids had run away from the sponsor because she didn't receive her salary. She sought help from a taxi driver in Dubai who took them to the villa where she was locked up and allegedly forced to have sex with another Indian, she told the prosecution, the Gulf News reported.
