Sex racket: HC seeks reply of cops on bail plea of Sanyal
The Delhi High Court on Monday sought response of police on the bail plea of a 62-year-old man, who was arrested for allegedly running a high-profile sex racket here and trafficking of women from Central Asian countries. Justice P S Teji directed Delhi Police to file a status report by September 14 explaining the stage of investigation into the arrest of Pritindra Nath Sanyal, who has been held on alleged charges of trafficking. Sanyal has moved the High Court challenging the trial court’s July 30 order dismissing his bail plea, saying the allegations against him were very serious in nature. Police said Sanyal was arrested after documents indicating his involvement in the illegal activity were found during raids at his residences by Income Tax authorities.
