Police in China have rescued 32 women trafficked from Vietnam after dismantling a human trafficking ring and arresting 75 suspects linked to the syndicate.

Altogether 75 suspects have been caught, police in southwest China's Yunnan Province said.

Police launched its investigation into the case after it recovered a woman in September 2015, who was unable to speak Chinese, and was accompanying a man who was acting suspicious.

It was later discovered that the woman was Vietnamese and she had been sold as a bride for 80,000 yuan (USD 11,620) to a man in Yao Autonomous County of Hekou.

Joint investigation by the police across seven provinces showed that a gang had been active in trafficking Vietnamese women to China.

The women were sold across the country through several middlemen, state-run Xinhua agency reported.
