US investigating agencies have busted an international sex racket run by a Telugu businessman and his wife. The couple used to force upcoming actresses from Tollywood to have sex with their clients.

The accused have been identified as Kishan Modugumudi, 34 and his wife Chandra, who were arrested in the last week of April by US federal agency. US agencies have now filed a criminal complaint in an Illinois court.

According to the complaint filed, the offences took place from May 11, 2017 to January 22, 2018. The news broke on Wednesday after the Chicago media reported the police had filed a charge sheet in the case.

According to the reports, on Wednesday, three Tollywood actresses travelling to Chicago were stopped at Chicago airport after the authorities found that their mobile numbers were saved in Kishan’s phone. The couple had promised the Tollywood actresses that they would participate in cultural events and conferences organised by various associations in the United States.  

“The accused would take the victims to Telugu and other Indian conferences held across the US to identify potential customers who would pay them to engage in commercial sex,” a report in Times of India quoted the complaint filed in the case, as stating.

The actresses were forced to stay in an apartment in Chicago. While the Tollywood actresses were on temporary US visas and met clients in New York, Washington and Dallas, the complaint added.
