HYDERABAD: Four alleged inter-state human traffickers, who were sending workers including women to Gulf countries illegally to work there, have been arrested. Police said most of the victims work for long hours and get paid less than the promised amount.
The accused were identified as Sk Mohammed Imtiyaz, 35, N Subbamma, 27, both travel agents, G Subba Rayudu, 38, a driver from Kadapa, and their associate, Mohammed Haroon, 52, an office assistant of Al Hayath Tours & Travels in Malakpet. Al Hayath Tours & Travels managing director Md Naseer, his daughter Sumaiya Fathima, owner of the travels company, and their associate, Sayed, were absconding.
The accused were illegally trying to send the victim, Shaik Khadar Bi, 26, of Medipally, to Muscat on a visit visa instead of work visa, Rachakonda police commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat said.
The fraud came to light when Khadar Bi, who was supposed to board a flight to Muscat from Hyderabad on February 7, returned home from the airport and approached police. “About a month ago, Khadar Bi’s aunt, Masthanamma, 55, of Nellore, was sent to Muscat by the same gang to work as a domestic help on a visit visa. When the accused approached Khadar Bi, offering her employment in Muscat with a package of Rs 25,000 to Rs 30,000 monthly salary, she contacted Masthanamma and got a negative feedback,” SOT inspector T Ravi Kumar said.
Mastanamma said her employer makes her work for 18 hours and pays only Rs 18,000 salary instead of Rs 25,000. Apart from her aunt’s negative feedback, Khadar Bi also developed apprehensions about the accused when Imtiyaz asked her to meet alone in a lodge at Shamshabad before going to the airport. “The arrested accused met her at the airport to give her necessary documents. When they told Khadar Bi that her salary of Rs 30,000 will be deposited in the family member’s account after she sends a photo boarding the flight, she became suspicious and left the airport,” the inspector said.
Based on the complaint of the victim, police raided the travel agency at Malakpet and seized 40 passports, belonging to 28 men and 12 women from two Telugu states. Police said that Naseer collects Rs 4 lakh to Rs 5 lakh from employers to send a domestic help and pays Rs 60,000 to Rs 1 lakh to his associates from Kadapa for sending him a suitable candidate. A manhunt has been launched to nab the absconding accused and police were verifying details of the documents seized from the travel agency.
