NATIONAL LEGAL RESEARCH DESK – A SHAKTI VAHINI RESEARCH INITIATIVE
With the arrest of four persons, including two girls, the city police claimed to have busted a sex racket. The accused used to operate under the garb of an online escort service agency from the Sector 50 area here. The arrests were made on Friday evening after a Delhi-based girl, who works with a BPO company, lodged a complaint that her profile was posted on the escort service website.
The police said the victim, Neha (name changed), registered a complaint, saying that her profile on social networking website ‘Facebook’ was hacked and posted on the escort website, which makes call girls available to customers. Then, the police constituted a team with the cyber crime cell.
A trap was laid. A decoy customer dialled the number posted on the website to strike a deal with the accused. The accused reached Sector 50 and was caught red-handed.
Apart from the call girls —Geeta, 22, and Sheela, 20, (names changed), two pimps — Kumar and Amar Singh have been arrested. The car, in which the four had come, has also been impounded.
The accused revealed that one Ramu was the kingpin of the gang and it was his cell phone number that has been posted on the website. Ramu is yet to be arrested.
“The racket includes foreigners, too, who came to the country as tourists or for jobs,” said a senior police official. A case under the IT Act and human trafficking has been registered against the accused. They were produced before a court on Saturday and have been sent to judicial custody, said a police
