Cops uncover sleaze rackets in two Gurugram malls
Two sleaze rackets that was operational in the high end malls at MG road and Sohna road were busted on Thursday.
The first raid was conducted at the Alive Spa in Sahara mall on MG Road from where five women and one male manager were arrested. They will be charged under sections of 3, 4,5,7,8 of the immoral trafficking act.
The second raid was conducted at the Golden Spa of Omaxe mall in Sohna road where seven people, including two male clients, three female workers and two male managers were arrested.
Earlier in June, the police had conducted raids in high end places situated at Golf Course road, Sohna Road and MG Road and made arrests of who are involved in the sex trade.
"On timely basis, the police cracks down on the sex racket that is mainly operational in spa centres and guesthouses. Citizen participation and police crackdown have resulted many people involved in these trades being arrested," said a senior Gurugram police official.
"In addition to closely monitoring the functioning of spa and massage parlours, we have also had a word with the pubs in malls. They have been asked to install CCTC cameras and not encourage underage drinking. The illegal activities occurring in pubs and the spas should be seen in same context," he added.
"It definitely comes as a shock when crimes like sex trade are being busted in areas where large number of residents visit. It is commendable that such actions are being taken by the police but the effort must be persistent," said Archana Srivastava, who is a regular visitor to the malls.
