CCB sleuths 'bust' flesh trade racket

Sleuths from the City Crime Branch’s (CCB) Women and Narcotics Wing have busted an alleged prostitution ring in the City involving Iranian women. 

The suspects were advertising the services on two websites. A CCB sleuth went as a decoy and called on the number given on the website. The agent was called to a specific location where the CCB sleuths laid a trap and arrested Bidhubhushan Mohapatra alias Rakesh alias John and two girls of Iranian nationality.

Bidhubhushan hails from Orissa and was running the prostitution ring. He started out with two pornography websites a couple of years ago. Investigations revealed that an Iranian girl studying a dental course at a reputed college in the City contacted him through the website and offered herself as a call girl and thus started a partnership of the two. 

Later, she allegedly lured many poor Iranian girls into the flesh trade and shared the earnings with Bidhubhushan on a 60:40 basis. Bidhubhushan, who had helped an Iranian girl arrive in the country, later confiscated her passport and pushed her into flesh trade. A case has been registered at the Hebbal police station in this regard.
