Almost a year after an investigation began into a racket involving trafficking of Bangladeshi girls in various cities of India for sexual exploitations, the NIA finally got a breakthrough on Saturday in the case and arrested a key member of the gang from Hyderabad.

The National Investigation Agency arrested Justin alias Abdul Salam from Hyderabad.

Justin was arrested during a search operation conducted at his ancestral as well as rented house, the NIA said, adding incriminating documents have been recovered during the raid.

The anti-terror agency also managed to rescue two young women from Justin's house during the operation. Officials said the two were trafficked into India a few months back from Bangladesh for sexual exploitation through Justin's associates.

In his late 40s, Justine and his network brought girls illegally from Bangladesh and forced them into prostitution. The accused was involved in running brothels at various places in Hyderabad and other parts of India.

NIA investigators claimed that Justin was a key conspirator. The agency took six months of rigorous attempts to unearth the gang after it took over the case from Hyderabad police on November 17 last year.

The state police had filed a case under charges of the Immoral Traffic Prevention Act at Chatrinaka police station in Hyderabad. "The case relates to immoral trafficking of persons from Bangladesh to various cities in India, including Hyderabad, for sexual exploitation," the NIA said.

Three Bangladeshi nationals -- Mohd Yousuf Khan, Bithi Begum and Sojib Shaik -- and an Indian national Ruhul Amin Dhalli have already been arrested and a charge sheet against them was filed on March 12 this year.
