An alleged international prostitution racket, run from the posh Greater Kailash Part-II area of South-East Delhi, was busted on Monday Seven people, including three Uzbek women were arrested.
"Three Uzbek women nationals, their three customers Mohammed Imran, Sem Ahmed and Sahjad Khan — all residents of the walled city area — and one Raju Paswan, working as a carrier, were arrested," a senior police official said.
According to the police, the three Uzbek women — aged between 21 and 25 years — were living in a rented accommodation in GK-II without valid travel documents.
"The head leading the racket was a Haryana resident, Ajay alias Jaat, who was staying in Delhi for the past three years. He allegedly used to facilitate the visit and stay of foreign girls in Delhi on tourist visa," said Ajay Choudhary, ACP South East District.
He had been operating the international flesh trade in Delhi and the NCR region since the past three years.
Ajay used to arrange clients for the girls and charged between Rs. 4,000-Rs. 8,000. He used to charge much more for belly dancing, weekend parties and travel companions to various destinations across India, such as Shimla, Jaipur and Goa.
“The girls used to come to India on tourist visa for a period ranging between three to six months,” Choudhary said.
All the seven accused (three women, one pimp and three customers) have been arrested under various sections of the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act, 1956 and the Foreigner's Act, he said, adding that the Uzbekistan Embassy has been intimated about the arrest of their nationals. Efforts were on to arrest Jaat.
