Jiangxi cops bust gang that trafficked in women

POLICE in east China's Jiangxi Province said they've busted a human trafficking gang that had sold more than 10 women across the country, including six from Myanmar.

Police have apprehended five gang members, the Legal Daily reported yesterday.

The investigation started after officers in Jiangxi's Pingxiang City were alerted early in May that three Burmese women had been sold in Changping Town five years earlier.

Police visited the area, confirmed the trafficking report and discovered the women's identities. Villagers said they bought the women for 15,000 yuan (US$2,195) each from a broker called "Luoyazai."

After an investigation, police identified the suspect as a man surnamed Peng and caught him in Pukou Town in Hunan Province's LiLing City.

Peng confessed he had bought the women from a gang in Jinghong City in southwest China's Yunnan Province, which is on China's border with Myanmar.

Police went to Yunnan and caught the alleged ringleader, who was later identified as a man surnamed Gan. Police also caught another three gang members.
