Gang of maid kidnappers busted in Sharjah

By Staff

Sharjah Police have arrested a gang of five Indians who would kidnap housemaids and then force them to work as sex slaves.

The Sharjah CID received information that the accused were running a brothel in Sharjah.

After confirming the information the CID launched an intensive investigation and found that the gang would impersonate security men, wearing kandouras and travel in rented cars.

The CID also learnt that the gand had recently kidnapped a girl from a neighboring emirate and were keeping her in the Al Yarmouk area of Sharjah.

Finally, Sharjah Police raided the apartment and arrested them and rescued four girls of Indian and Bangladeshi nationality.

The apartment also contained a large cache of alcohol.

The case now goes to court.
