Five women traffickers from Uganda were arrested by the Anti Human Trafficking Unit (AHTU), who busted an international human and drugs trafficking racket.
A thorough check revealed that all the accused are carrying banned narcotics drugs.
The accused Nassali Milly, 35, Nakkazzi Florence, 36, Sarah Namwanje, 23, Nalwoga Oliver Hildah, 25, and Sharifah Nakabuubi, 25, who are all from Uganda came to India on tourist visas, but didn’t return even after their visas expired.
Nassali moved to Hyderabad and due to financial constraints, she turned to sex work along with Nakkazzi. Later, they informed the other three to come to India for the same and started advertising their services on an online website ‘Locanto’.
They started uploading their pictures on the website to attract potential customers and call on the mentioned phone number. The AHTU team and cops with Chaitanyapuri police station called on the given phone number and slotted a deal to trap the accused.
Nassali, responding to the message, spoke about the availability of three Ugandan women with their prices. Unaware of the trap, the accused sent their location. In a joint operation, the AHTU team and the cops with Chaitanyapuri police station reached the spot and arrested the five accused.
The five accused from Uganda had come to India on tourist visas, but failed to return even after the validity of their visas expired. While Milly and Florence turned to sex work to manage their finances, the rest were lured by the two.
They would use a website ‘Locanto’ to advertise and seek customers.
