Police in the central province of Nghe An Sunday said they have arrested three people for pimping three 14-year-old virgin girls.
Nguyen Thi Ly, 33, Phan Van Quy, 39, and Phan Giap, 38, are accused of providing the girls to three men in Hanoi.
The three were paid a total of VND36 million (US$1,700) for the girls, according to Yen Thanh District police.
The trio paid each girl VND5 million ($236) to have sex with the men, police said.
Police reports said that on October 5, Ly talked the girls, two of whom were twins, into "selling their virginity."
She then introduced them to Quy, who took them to a hospital in Vinh Town to have their hymens checked, police said.
After the check-up, Quy and Giap took the girls to Hanoi, where they had sex with three men at a hotel the next day.
The trio was arrested when taking the girls home on October 9, police said.
The girls' families had filed missing persons reports the previous day, they added.
According to police, Quy and Giap had previously served time for procuring sex services.
Police are investigating the case.
Some people in Vietnam, especially rich businessmen, believe that having sex with a virgin girl can help change their bad luck.
