A Bangladeshi girl, who was abducted from Andhra Pradesh’s Visakhapatnam, has been rescued by the city police on Wednesday.

The police said she was illegally brought to India on April 24 along with other women and forced to stay in Kolkata for about three to four days with one Munir.

He sent the victim to Visakhapatnam, where Vineet and Dhanlakshmi forced her into prostitution and confined her to a house, police said.

“The victim entered India illegally on April 24 along with other women. For about 3-4 days, she was in Kolkata with a person, namely Munir, who created a fake Aadhar Card number and sent her to Visakhapatnam, where Vineet and Dhanlakshmi introduced her to prostitution,” Srikanth, CP Visakhapatnam told ANI.

However, the girl informed her brother in Dhaka about her abduction, who in turn shared it with the city police officials.
