Chennai cops bust nationwide online sex racket

CHENNAI: Suburban police on Tuesday busted a national-level online prostitution network, and arrested one pimp and rescued two Mumbai-based women near Porur Roundtana. Police said that the girls who engaged in the trade moved from one city to the other.

Police received a tip-off from a customer about a prostitution racket in a house in Virugambakkam, carried out under the garb of escort services. The police found a contact number on the Internet and used a decoy to initiate contact. After two days of investigation and follow-ups, the special anti-vice squad of suburban police nabbed the pimp and rescued a girl from a car on Tuesday noon.

According to the police, the pimp was identified as R Saravanamuthu alias Surya, 35, from Vattur village in Namakkal district. Saravanamuthu used to bring girls from Mumbai. Meanwhile, the police raided a house in Virugambakkam and rescued another girl. The girls are Manjula Pande, 22, of Orissa and Neha Choudhary, 24, of Andra Pradesh. The two had settled in Mumbai four years ago.

The police found a Bangalore number online, and when they called, they obtained a local number. The gang offered college girls and teen girls for escort services.

“The pimp allowed his customers take the girls out, and asked them to treat the women like their wives,” assistant deputy commissioner of suburban police S Jayakumar said. He charged `15,000 for a day. The girls worked for a monthly salary.
