THE COURT of District and Sessions Judge Sharat Shrivastava today maintained three-year rigorous imprisonment term to Seema Shrivastava, who was arrested on charges of flesh trade and immoral trafficking of women.

The court, however, acquitted two other accused in the case. The lower court had sentenced all three of them and awarded jail term .

Shrivastava and the other accused were arrested from her residence at Gulmohar Colony in a police raid on November 17, 2002.

Trial court of Bhavana Sadho had sentenced each of them to rigorous imprisonment of three years and a fine of Rs 4000 each. The sensational case had rocked the political and bureaucratic circles after Shrivastava alleged involvement of high and mighty of the City in her sex racket and police were also said to have recovered a diary from her possession bearing names of some senior bureaucrats and politicians.

After being sentenced by the trial court, all the three accused had gone for appeal in the Sessions court. The court of District & Sessions Judge, while disposing of the matter today, maintained punishment awarded to Seema Shrivastava but acquitted the two other accused for lack of sufficient evidence.
