NEW DELHI: The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has directed Delhi government officials to ascertain the real owners of brothels in GB Road in order to nab culprits who have been evading the law for some time.

DCW chief Swati Mailwal on Saturday held a meeting with police, government and civic officials asking them to ascertain the real owners of such brothels.

“Under the law, if a minor is rescued from a brothel, it should be closed and an FIR should be registered against the owners. However, in case of GB Road, the owners are untraceable. FIRs are registered against those identified as ‘managers’ who are mostly sex workers,” a DCW official said.
