HYDERABAD: Several television artistes from Telugu industry are being engaged by party organisers in Goa on the pretext of dancing at private parties but later they were allegedly exploited. Recently, four such artists were rescued and brought back to Andhra Pradesh by the officials of Crime Investigation Department (CID).
At a time when the concept of organising dance girls in private parties is going unchecked in many places of Hyderabad, some of the girls have been taken to Goa, Bangalore, Gulf countries in the pretext of dancing in private parties and dance bars but they were exploited.
"The four girls who were brought from Goa were sent to rehabilitation centre. This case was brought to our notice recently by a NGO saying that few girls from AP, including some TV artistes, were taken to Goa, to dance at private parties, and are later exploited for favours also,'' CID (women protection cell) Superintendent of police Kalpana Naik told TOI.
Most of these victims are either upcoming artists or junior artists who will be good in dance and suits the requirements of the exploiters as they need not train them.
There are cases where in a minor girls were sold to a gang who look for girls who will be used in dance bars at Gulf countries.
``Few months ago, a minor girl was rescued from a village near Kalahasthi, Chittoor district, on the information of her mother, and a case is registered against her father who tried to send her to dance clubs in Gulf countries,'' officials said.
But the same father, earlier sent her elder daughter, who is also a minor, to Gulf to work in dance bars, by obtaining a passport showing her as major.
"Typically, the gang target women who are in socially or financially difficult situations, such as girls from unstable families, girls who run away from their houses and desperately be in need of money. They recruit them by promising them to provide jobs with decent pay in Mumbai, Gulf and other place but they will be sold,'' officials said.
