Police said when they reached Mehta's house, it was locked from outside and she was present in her boutique in an adjoining room. When the lock was forcibly opened, a young couple was found in one of the rooms, the police added.

Meanwhile, son of the accused kingpin, Sunny Mehta, managed to give a slip to police. Mehta and her client couple have been arrested under the Immoral Trafficking Act, police added.
