The social service branch of the Mumbai police exposed a prostitution racket that involves three TV actresses. It was after the social service branch officials laid a trap by sending decoy customers to a mall in Dindoshi where the gang’s two leaders were likely to send three women. After a cop confirmed the news, a police team raided a building near Film City, where they arrested the two models and two more people.
Police claimed that the operatives of the racket used social media sites to share photos of models and actors with their prospective clients. They used to charge customers anywhere between Rs 50,000 to Rs 1 lakh.
Inspector S Bidkar told media, “We rescued the women and arrested the pimps under the Prevention of Immoral Trafficking Act.”
Amit Jalal, who busted the sex racket told media:
“After getting the information that some girls were involved in sex racket , we laid a trap. We wanted to arrest main suppliers Saira and Asaraf alias Aman. When they came there, we arrested them along with the girls”.
Among arrested include a Marathi actress, a model and an actress who worked in popular Crime show Savdhaan India. Most of their clients were from the corporate world.
