Police arrest 60 in connection with human trafficking

Police in Mpumalanga are investigating a case of suspected human trafficking after they found 104 held captive during raids at the weekend. They had received a tip-off from a woman who informed them that she too had been kept against her will at a house in the area and had been drugged and raped. It is unclear how she escaped. Police have arrested 60 people on charges of human trafficking, drug possession and prostitution.
