A Muslim girl-trafficking racket taking place in the guise of marriage to rich Gulf nationals was busted by the Hyderabad police on Friday. 

V Satyanarayana Deputy Commissioner of Police (South Zone) said Mohamed Mahmood Abdul Rehman Mahmood, his brother Yousuf Mahmood Abdul Rahman Mahmood Khairi (Bahrain nationals), Askar Ali Rafai, a qazi and lodge owner Barkathullah Sharif were taken into custody.

The Bhavani Nagar police received a complaint from one Kulsum Begum on October 30 that she got her second daughter Sameena Begum (29) married to Rehman Mahmood (50) in May. The marriage was performed by Qazi Rafai at King Koti. After the marriage, the girl was taken to Bahrain as a maid servant and subjected to sexual abused by the Bahrain brothers. She was later sent back to India.

A few days ago, the Bahrain brothers returned and were planning to marry a minor girl from Talabkatta area with the help of the same qazi. The police which kept a strict vigil came to know that the qazi was planning to perform the marriage at Tolichowki on Friday. They also knew that the Bahrain brothers were sheltered by hotel Safa Tower owner Barkathulla Sharif. On a tip off, the police raided the lodge and arrested the Bahrain nationals and rescued the girl. A case has been filed under Section 370 and 420 of the Indian Penal Code against the accused.
