Marvelene’s Inn Trafficking Case: Another woman pimp in police net
SHILLONG: As the trafficking case that involves the names of many high profile leaders of the state gradually takes full shape, another woman was arrested for her involvement in the crime, raising the number of arrested persons to 5.
The woman identified as Mona Lisa Shangpliang (22) was called to Laitumkhrah police station and then she was arrested.
Earlier, the police had arrested an employee of Marvelene's Inn, two women pimps, Mamuni Parveen and Tarisha Mary Kharbamon, and 22-year-old Madan Bahadur Thapa of Jhalupara.
According to police, Mona Lisa is the one who took the girl to customers. Further inquiry is on into the matter.
Meanwhile, the chairperson of the State Commission for Protection of Child Rights, Mina Kharkongor, has asked the public prosecutor to oppose the bail to the accused involved in the sexual exploitation of a minor girl.
In a letter addressed to public prosecutor I.C Jha, Kharkongor urged him to raise objection if the bail comes up during the hearing as the accused "Mamuni Parveen and others have been involved in trafficking young girls and were using them in flesh trade".
According to Kharkongor, the 14-year-old victim is yet to identify more influential people involved in the racket and if the bail is granted to the accused, the purpose of catching others will be defeated.
