KUWAIT CITY, Oct 16: Detectives from Ahmadi Security Command landed a huge blow on a human trafficking gang following the arrest of four men — two Bedoun and two Asians — in Fintas area. With this arrest, the detectives have succeeded in ending the inhumane practices that 26 Asians were subjected to by the four-member gang, as they were forced to work in massage parlors and provide sexual services to their willing customers.

According to sources, Ahmadi Criminal Investigations Department received information about some Asians who were being held captive by the gang and forced to work in massage parlors in Abu Halifa and Mahboula area.

Immediately a team was formed for conducting investigations. After acquiring necessary legal documentations from the Public Prosecution, the team of detectives raided the parlors and arrested the suspects involved in the crime as well as those who have been cooperating with the vice that transpired in those parlors. The sources affirmed that the owner of the parlors as well as the gang have been assaulting the victims and forcing them to engage in sexual vices and work continuously, in addition to forcing them to wear make-up and women’s clothes.

The victims said they wanted to file a case against the owner of the massage parlors and his accomplices who placed them under captivity as soon as they arrived in Kuwait. The concerned authorities have taken necessary legal measures against the culprits.
