Twitter helps CCB police  bust prostitution racket

The initiative by Commissioner of Police M N Reddi of an exclusive twitter account has helped CCB police bust a nationwide human trafficking and flesh trade racket and arrest five persons.

In response to the request of DCP Crime (@CCBBangalore) on twitter seeking information on flesh trade/trafficking from general public, one twitter user sent a specific link of an internet erotic advertisement with a mobile phone number.

The CCB decoy contacted the number in the advertisement. The police found that the number worked like a call centre for prostitution for many states in India.

The decoy was asked to come near Shanti Sagar Hotel, Indiranagar, and one Dileep took the decoy to 1st floor, DT Court, 9th A main, Indiranagar, 1st stage and went away.

Immediately, the CCB police raided the premises and rescued four girls from West Bengal. The brothel was being run by Dileep with the help of three persons—Ravi, 29, Santosh Kumar, 32, from Udupi and Lingaraju, 31, from Kollegal.
