Gurgaon police have busted an alleged prostitution racket, which was being run from a house in Rajendra Park. Three women were rescued.
According to Shakti Vahini, an NGO that assisted in the case, the matter came to light when one of the women, who was forced into prostitution, managed to escape from the house and reach Delhi. She was then spotted by Shakti Vahini members, who produced her before senior police officers in Gurgaon.
On the basis of information provided by the woman, police raided the house and rescued three other women. A couple were arrested in this connection.
“The couple had been running this business for a long time. The woman was arrested by the police for a similar offence earlier also,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Abhay Rao said. They usually targeted women in search of jobs, he added.
However, the woman’s partner claimed during questioning that he was just living with her, and had no part to play in the racket. The man, a resident of Pataudi, reportedly said that he had even complained to the police against her, but to no avail. Police are currently trying to procure information on the couple’s customers, and the hotels the victims were being sent to.
