Tight CWG vigil helps cops stumble upon rackets

With clear instructions from Union Home Ministry not to ignore any input without verification, sources in the Delhi Police today said the trail of some such inputs had a hilarious ending while some led to busting of hawala or human trafficking networks.

In one such case, an input was received about a lady using a fictitious name during her telephone calls to a person in Pakistan. The nature of the conversation was intimate in nature, the sources said.

However, when the woman was informed by the service provider through a SMS that she had been calling too frequently across the border, in the next call made by her she expressed apprehensions that she would be picked up and "their plan will be washed away".

The Delhi Police swung into action suspecting her to be a woman recruit of some terror outfit. As she was questioned, it took a little time for the sleuths to understand that she was a call girl who had met the Pakistani national in a Gulf country, the sources said.

The human trafficking racket which also included prostitution was busted mainly from Badarpur area in the outskirts of South Delhi and East Delhi, the  police sources said.
During the intense vigil, which included two days of near shutdown in the national capital on October three and 14, police also stumbled upon new hawala rackets and a revived "savari racket".

The "savari racket" was started by terrorist groups and ISI in which poor people having relations across the border in Pakistan are used for ferrying money and Fake Indian Currency Notes (FICN) into India through Samjhauta Express -- the only train link between India and Pakistan.

The police also unearathed rackets dealing with FICN and a few persons have been picked up for questioning.
