3 Malaysian girls rescued from prostitution racket
Kuala Lumpur, July 07 (ANI): Three Malaysian female students have been rescued from a prostitution syndicate.
Police rescued the three teenage girls, believed to have been forced into vice, when they busted the syndicate offering the sexual services of the secondary school students.
State CID chief Assistant Commissioner Mohammad Adnan Abdullah said that seven suspects, including a woman in her 20s who is believed to be the pimp were arrested.
"Besides the female pimp, police also detained another woman and her male companion as they are believed to be involved in the syndicate," Abdullah said.
He said that the activities of the prostitution racket surfaced when a student lodged a police report against one of the suspects, claiming she was forced to entertain men, reports The Star Online.
"We believe the syndicate was offering the services of the students to clients for between RM60 and RM80," Abdullah said.
"Four men were also detained as they are believed to have sought the services of the girls," he added.
The syndicate had been operating from a hotel in the city since May, according to initial investigations. (ANI)
