UAE police help bust Kerala-Gulf sex racket

By Vinita Chadda

Ajman police have arrested three Indian girls for engaging in flesh trade even as their counterparts in Kerala have sent out lookout notices against an Indian woman accused of trafficking more than 100 girls to the Gulf for sex trade.

The Crime Branch section of the Kerala Police said they have alerted all airports and sea ports in the country for Lissy Sojan or Aswathy as she is popularly known as.

The woman has been accused of trafficking about 125 girls.

A senior official of the Indian Association in Ajman told Emirates 24|7 that they have been trying to find out from the arrested Indians in Dubai if they were part of the racket.

“But these women never tell the truth,” the official said.

The arrested women have been identified as Bindu S, Ajita M and Yasmeen B.

“Currently we are in the process of preparing out-pass (temporary travel document issued by the Indian Embassy to a person who has either misplaced or lost the passport) for these women. They will then be deported,” the official added.

Meanwhile, media reports quoting police in Kerala said the whereabouts of the 43-year-old Lissy, who is the main accused in the case is still not known.

She is believed to have two houses in the UAE – one at Ajman and another one in Sharjah.

Lissy is said to have started her sex racket in 2004 after being in the business in India for years. Her husband committed suicide and she was even arrested by the police in India a couple of times for sex trade.

Kerala Police also said they have started the process to involve Interpol in arresting her.
