Bangladeshi prostitution ring busted in Male’ thumbnail

Police have arrested five Bangladeshi men and three Bangladeshi women in a crackdown on a Bangladeshi prostitution ring.

The five were arrested last night after raiding Mahchangolhi Rauha house, a place allegedly used for prostitution.

Police conducted a special operation on Monday night and entered the house with a court warrant. There were four rooms in the house and police saw illegal sexual activities carried out in three of the four rooms when they attended the scene, police said.

According to police, officers discovered items used for sexual activities and lots of foreign and Maldivian currency.

Police said the investigation into the case had revealed that the money was obtained through prostitution.

Furthermore, police advised landlords to find out who the tenants were before renting out their houses.

In April this year, police arrested seven Bangladeshi nationals over alleged involvement in a prostitution ring on premises suspected of operating as brothels.

The suspects – four female and three male – were apprehended during raids by police officers inside Ranfaunu house, based in the Mahchangolhi ward of Male’ on 9 April.

Last October, a prostitution ring that had trafficked Sri Lankan girls to Maldivian resorts via Male’ for the past six years was busted by Sri Lankan police, and is now being investigated by local authorities.

Last Saturday police arrested four Thai women and one Maldivian man for involvement in illegal sexual activities inside a beauty salon in Male’.

In May, two people were arrested at the “New Age” beauty salon for sexual misconduct.

In April police arrested two Thai women and two local men on prostitution charges after raiding a Male’-based business called ‘Maldivian Care’.

In March police arrested five Thai nationals and three male Maldivians inside ‘Herbal Beauty Salon’, located on the second floor of Maafannu Sherrif.

Lots of beauty salons in Male’ have been closed on prostitution charges after the new government came to power.

    what? lolly jabir, buruma gasim and them can have prostates employed in their resorts to cater for them and their police and MNDF buddies.. and Bangladeshi’s cannot? not very democratic I would say eh….

    Saint Gasim and Saint Jabir clearly can afford concubines off the harbi slave markets. These commoners however, cannot. Every prostate must be examined by our Holy Officers to see whether they’re free women or concubines. Let no prostate go unchecked.

    Ah, and yet, the higher middle class and the upper class can visit bangkok to get as many hookers as they like. This is just done for the time being so that the sheeplim in our islamic empire would be happy enough with the current government and their hooker hunting policies until 2013, when they obviously will market themselves as the hooker hunters.

    I am curious though. Has the stabbings totally stopped or have they been reduced? Because obviously, arresting prostitutes is much more important than stopping street violence where people actually do lose their lives, right?

    Sorry, my coment has nothing to do with the above articel.. It is for adhaalath and lolly!!! Your comments are hilarious guys, couldn’t stop laughing. Maybe you should Google the word “prostate”. Let me tell you it is not the same as prostitute :-) A prostate is a part of the male(!) reproductive organs it is located between the rectum and the bladder…. That makes your comment” that every prostate must be examined by our holy officers ” and “let no prostate go unchecked” extremely entertaining. But I am completely with you considering the rise of prostate cancer ..Thanks for giving me a good laugh!!

    Seapanes full of Russian working ladies go in groups down to Sun Island, it is a fact of life. Get over it. They are not arranged by Gasim, but by the ruski inbound tour operators for their high ed clients.

    We are okay. Looks like there are no 100% Muslim Maldivian prostitutes in the cases reported so far.
