The social service branch of the Mumbai police exposed a prostitution racket that involves three TV actresses. Many high profile girls, including an actress from television show ‘Savdhaan India’, a Marathi actress and a model were reportedly involved in the prostitution business.
Acting on the information, an undercover cop posing as a ‘supplier’ contacted some persons who were associated with the racket. After receiving a confirmation from the cop, a Mumbai police team attacked a building near Film City and arrested the two models and another two persons – Sayra and Ashraf alias Aman – who were allegedly associated with the racket.
According to the Mumbai police, the operatives of the racket used to share photos of the models and actors with their prospective clients through social media sites. After receiving a confirmation of the ‘deal’ from the clients, the models were supplied to them.
The head official who busted the sex-racket said, “After getting the information that some girls were involved in the 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.”
As per reports, girls used to charge Rs 50, 000 to 1 lakh from the customers. Police said that girl were sent to high profile people, including corporate clients.
