Police busts sex racket after raid at DLF Phase-1 spa, two women held
The police on Wednesday arrested two women from a spa in DLF Phase-1 for their alleged involvement in flesh trade. Two teams from DLF Phase-1 police stations raided the spa after sending decoy customers to the establishment.
The suspected women, both between the ages of 20-25, have been living in the city for the last one year, police said. “We sent two head constables as decoy customers, at Avon SPA on the first floor of Qutab Plaza market. They met the spa manager and one of the women at the counter demanded ₹1,000 for a massage and asked to finalise the charges for ‘extra services’ from a woman who was inside the cubicle. The women demanded ₹2,000 each for these services. The decoys agreed and handed over two notes of ₹2,000 denomination to each,” assistant commissioner of police (crime) Shamsher Singh said.
After that, the head constables gave a missed call to inspector SHO Ved Prakash, who was standing guard with a police party near the gate. “We raided the club and arrested the women for illicit trade. We recovered the ₹4,000 given to the women by the decoy customers,” Singh said.
“The women had been working at the spa for one year and they used to share the profit,” Singh said, adding that the owner was not aware of the flesh trade running out of the spa.
A case was registered against the accused under the sections 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the Immoral Trafficking (Prevention) Act, 1956. The accused were produced in the district court and sent to judicial custody, police said.
The spa management could not be contacted for comment.
