Mumbai: The Social Service Branch (SSB) of Mumbai police on Wednesday busted a high-profile sex racket in Goregaon area after they received a tip from a source.
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.
As per sources, a cop went undercover posing as a ‘supplier’ and tried to get in touch with some people reportedly associated with the racket. After receiving a confirmation from the cop, the police conducted a raid at a building near Film City and detained the accused.
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, those running the racket used to share photographs of models and actors with their clients using the social media. The clientele of the racket mostly involved high profile business class and corporate people. When the woman was selected and confirmed by the client, the woman was supplied to him.
The police said that a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered. The main accused, however, is still on run.
