Hyderabad: On Thursday a survivor of flesh trade, who was abducted nearly 13 years ago, managed to escape from the clutches of traffickers. Just while police were conducting checks at Abdullapurmet, the victim who was at a home in the same locality, escaped and seeked their help.
On Saturday, three traffickers, including the kingpin were arrested. The girl, who is now 24, was abducted when she was merely 11-year-old from Vijayawada. The accused, Pakanati Padmamma (65), and her daughter-in-law, Pakanati Savithri (30), of Abdullapurmet village used to find minor girls and women from AP to run their flesh trade business. "Padmamma would give the victims 5,000- 6,000 a month and spend the rest on herself and her family," said Abdullapurmet inspector D Muni.
"Before she was trapped in the flesh trade business, the victim had been working as a domestic help. At that time, Padmamma's associate, Pavithra lured the victim saying she could provide her a better job. She then took the girl to Yadagirigutta and sold her for Rs 20,000," said the inspector.
Associates Achamma, Anjali, Shobha, Anjamma and Pavithra, are still absconding.
"As police were doing frequent raids in Yadagirigutta, the duo moved to a relative's house in Abdullapurmet a few weeks ago," said Muni.
Padmamma would take the victim to the districts and with help of her aides, arrange 10 to 15 customers daily for the minor. On Thursday, while police were doing rounds, the survivor managed to escape.
