An antique business racket was busted with the arrest of five members of a gang at Bonai, about 75 km from Rourkela in Orissa.

Police said the five, including the gang leader and two women, were picked up from a road-side hotel when they were waiting for a customer on Monday night.

The arrested persons, including former Lahunipada block Chairperson Sebati Nayak, were booked under Section 379/411, 120B/34 of the Indian Penal Code and Section 25 of Antiquities and Art Treasures Act, 1972.

They were produced before a Bonai court on Tuesday, which remanded them to judicial custody for two weeks.
