MUMBAI—IJM operatives have rescued seven trafficking victims from a Mumbai brothel in which they were routinely beaten, confined and involuntarily sold as prostitutes for as little as 150 rupees or $3.00 U.S. each.

The victims were removed from the brothel premises on April 1, when IJM rescue workers and local police conducted an operation at the building. The targeted brothel keeper, against whom evidence had already been collected, was found inside the building, caught off-guard by the appearance of the police and holding a wad of cash. She was arrested immediately.
