CCB raids brothel disguised as spa

The Central Crime Branch (CCB) has rescued six women, including three Thai nationals, who were forced into prostitution at a massage parlour in one of Bengaluru’s poshest neighbourhoods - Sadashivanagar. 

Central Crime Branch sleuths raided Shivai Thai Spa at RMV Extension, Sadashivanagar, and arrested its manager, Jenny S, 25, a native of Ukhrul district, Manipur, and two suspected human traffickers — Sirajuddin, 38, from Dharmanagar, Tripura, and Angchchukar, 28, from Guwahati, Assam. They rescued six women, three each from Thailand and Nagaland, and seized Rs 1.28 lakh in cash and eight mobile phones. The spa’s owner, Madhusudhan Paul and Prince Gupta, are absconding.

The Central Crime Branch said Sirajuddin and Angchchukar had promised the women lucrative jobs but pushed them into prostitution. The spa charged hefty fees for the women’s services, but paid them far less.
