At a time when BJP is attacking AAP over sacked Delhi minister Sandeep Kumar’s MMS scandal, an alleged sex racket was busted in Madhya Pradesh with the arrest of four people, including a man who reportedly operated ‘Narendra Modi Army Brigade’.

Police booked the four people for human trafficking and also under provisions of Immoral Traffic. (Prevention) Act. A local court sent the four to 14-day judicial custody.

On Sunday, police raided a beauty saloon at Sachin Tendulkar Marg in Gwalior district, 330 km from Bhopal, on Sunday and busted the alleged sex racket being run by Rajesh Agrawal. The four, including a woman manager, a receptionist and a customer identified as Vikas alias Tinu Jain, were arrested from the spot. Jain is said to operate ‘Narendra Modi Army Brigade’.

Jain who was allegedly caught in a compromising state with a woman tried to intimidate the police by claiming to be a member of the BJP’s youth wing Bhartiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM).

Police found Jain flaunted his picture with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on his Facebook account. Jain is also seen with Railways minister Suresh Prabhu and Gwalior MP and union minister Narendra Singh Tomar on his Facebook profile.

The BJP was quick to refute about Jain having any link with the BJP or any of its allied outfits. “He is not at all related to our party,” Gwalior district BJP president Devesh Sharma said. “Anyone can get his pictures snapped with political biggies.”

City SP Maharajpura, Vinayak Verma said primary investigations revealed that Jain, a wealthy private contractor, was a customer at the saloon. “Several incriminating things were seized from the spot. We probed his alleged links with the BJP, but the probe is yet to establish it,” Verma said.

Interestingly, Jain in last status update the FB page on Sunday posted: “Mai jaisa bhi hoon samne khada hoon, mujhe kuch chupabe ki aadat nahi.” (I am present despite whatever I am, I am not in a habit of hiding anything).

Investigation revealed that the racket sourced poor girls from Nagaland on the pretext of giving them job of beauticians, but were forced into massage and sex trade. “At least five women aged between 20-22 years (all hailing from Nagaland) were brought to Gwalior. One of the women was sent to Nagaland, while the other four will soon return to their state,” Verma added.
