The social service branch (SSB) of Mumbai police led by assistant commissioner of police (ACP) Vasant Dhoble raided a lodge in Wadala and rescued three women who were allegedly being forced into prostitution.

The manager of the lodge, a woman who the police allege to be a pimp, along with two others working at the lodge, were arrested for forcing women into prostitution.

Dhoble confirmed the raid and said the police had verified the information by sending in a fake customer.

The four held have been handed over to the Bhoiwada police station, under whose jurisdiction the lodge is located, for further investigations.

The police have registered a case under the Prevention of Immoral Trafficking Act.
