Sex racket busted, 12 held in Gurugram
Gurugram: The Gurugram police successfully busted another sex racket after it conducted a raid on the guest house in Sector-45 where the illegal act was being committed.
Twelve people including seven women were arrested by the law enforcement officials. The police conducted the raid after it received a tip-off from its sources that there were high chances that illegal activities were occurring at a place that is located in a residential colony.
The case has again highlighted the burgeoning sex trade in Gurugram that continues despite arrests being made by the law officials. In the past, not only Indians but even foreign women have been arrested in the raids that have been conducted. What has been more worrying that some of the foreign women even possessed a fake ID card.
With a large number of illegal and unregistered guesthouses functioning in the city for long, such activities were taking places in these premises. However, as most of these guesthouses are located in residential areas, resident bodies began informing the police about such activities happening in their neighbourhoods.
According to police, most of these activities now have shifted to spas and three star hotels of the city. Sources in the police also indicate that fearing increased raids most of the kingpin now is planning to shift their bases to outer areas of the city like Manesar, Sohna and Bhiwadi
"Curbing sex racket that is operational in Gurugram is a major challenge. Most of these people have a wide network and do not operate from one specific place. We have been taking action against these units based on the tip-off that we get from our sources," said a senior police official from Gurugram police.
Not only in guesthouses and glitzy malls but activities like this is also being reported from prominent locations of the city like MG road.
