Couple force daughter into prostitution

A Pakistani couple allegedly forced their 17-year old daughter into prostitution after a client violated her virginity against giving Dh16,000 to her father, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

The father KA, 38, and mother SK, 35, were accused of human trafficking. The victim’s mother is also accused of practicing prostitution with the help of her husband.

The victim AK, student, arrived in the UAE with her parents on a tourist visa in August 2013. A month later, her parents accompanied her to a hotel where her father asked her to offer sex to a Pakistani after taking Dh10,000 from him.

“My parents asked me to spend the night with the man in his hotel room. My father said he will come and pick me up next day morning. My parents asked the man not to hurt me since I was young. After they left, police raided the room and arrested me,” the girl told investigators.

She also told the police that, ten days after arriving in the UAE, her father had handed her over to a man who violated her virginity in return for Dh16,000. She also admitted that her mother worked in prostitution of her own will.

Police got a tip off about a father who was willing to sell his 14-year-old daughter for Dh10,000. Police arranged a trap and handed over the money to an informer who acted as the buyer. Policemen raided the room after the money was handed over, policeman OM testified.

The victim’s father, KA, 38, admitted to asking his daughter and his wife to offer sex to customers as he is financially incapable of providing for them. His wife admitted to willingly practicing prostitution for Dh200 and Dh300 per customer that her husband used to bring to her.

Police confiscated Dh3,900 from the family’s house. The police also arrested AH, 40, unemployed, and MS, 19, salesman, who were facilitating customers and helping the family to run a vice den.

MS created two websites where he placed pictures of girls so that customers could call him. He admitted to taking Dh1,200 to Dh2,000 monthly against providing this service to AH.

MA, 36, had sex with the victim without knowing that she was forced into it.

Police also arrested five Pakistani girls who were working as prostitutes willingly.

The Court will reconvene.
