Police here yesterday arrested two people involved in trafficking of
women. On the night of June 19, police in Xi'an, capital of northwest
China's Shaanxi province, took a complaint from a woman claiming two people
had forced her to become a prostitute. The woman succeeded in getting away
from the two people who controlled her. Based on the information she
provided, the police raided a hideout used by the two people, apprehending
them and seven prostitutes.
The initial reports show that on June 11, Cao Huafeng, from central
China's Hubei province, bought a woman of Zhijiang city from a human
trafficker with 3,400 yuan and, together with his elder sister and another
woman, forced her into prostitution. The seven women all came from the same
city of Hubei province. The prostitutes had to give all the money they
earned to Cao. The case remains under investigation.
