Police filed a case against four people including a hotel owner and sent the girls for forensic tests

Police, during a raid at a Barisal hotel on Monday, rescued two teenage girls reportedly from sexual slavery, as the girls were brought there with the promise of jobs about a month ago.

Selim Chowkidar, Anwar Hossain and Belal Gazi-- all of whom are staffs of Hotel Payel in Barisal’s Chawkbazar-- were arrested in connection with the incident.

Acting on a tip-off, police conducted a raid at the hotel in the early hours of Monday and arrested the trio, said Rabiul Islam Shamim, assistant commissioner of the detective branch of Barishal Metropolitan Police.

However, the owner of the hotel managed to flee.

The teenagers hailing from Jhalakathi and Barguna came to Barisal more than a month ago as the hotel staff assured them handsome salaries and a job in a private company, said Rabiul, quoting the girls.

The girls tried to escape after they were put into sexual slavery, but the hotel owner and staff confined them and kept them under round the clock surveillance.

Police filed a case against four people including the hotel owner and  sent the girls for forensic tests.
