US police reveal arrest of 4 Indians in human trafficking case

Princeton police have arrested four Indian nationals on charges of human trafficking, local media reported Tuesday. The arrestees were accused of running a “forced labor” scheme in Princeton’s Colin County.

The arrested persons have been identified as Chandan Dasireddy (24), Santhosh Katkoori (31), Dwaraka Gunda (31) and Anil Male (37). According to Princeton Police Sergeant Carolyn Crawford, more than a dozen people are involved in the forced labor scheme, while she suspects that more than 100 women have been trafficked.

The Princeton Police Department said the arrests were made in March after responding to a call from an individual who works for the pest control company. Company employees went to the home at 1000 Ginsburg Lane to inspect it for bedbugs. They reportedly saw “in each room … 3 to 5 young females sleeping on the floor.”

The victims, both men and women, worked as programmers for alleged shell companies, police added. They also seized several laptops, phones, printers and fraudulent documents during the search of the house.
