Jameela trapped the lady, who had been working as a home nurse in Tirur, on thepretext that she would help her secure a job in another establishment with a decent salary. The lady was taken to their car on December 30, 2011.
Aneesh Mohamed and Jamsheena were also in the car. Later, she was abused by many persons in various places like Gudalur, Ootty, Kondotty, Manjeri, Vengara etc.

According to the police, the racket has links with more than 50 other sex rackets in and outside the state.
“There are some more accused in the case. The investigation is going on,” the DySP said.
