Eight people, including three women from Uzbekistan, were arrested on Friday for their alleged involvement in prostitution.
A police team raided a guest house in Sector 39 and arrested the eight. They were allegedly found in a compromising situation, the police claimed.
The police received a tip-off that a prostitution racket was being run from the guest house, following which they kept a close watch on it. The police booked the accused under the Immoral Trafficking (Prevention) Act.
The accused were identified as Amit Kumar (UP), Vikas Singh (Bihar), Narender Kumar (UP), Pankaji (Maharashtra) and Sabina, Malika Kuchkarouva and Karimova Muyasiarhon from Uzbekistan. The accused include the lodge operator Deepak, who hails from Hyderabad.
According to the Sadar police, the guest house was running the prostitution racket for the last few months. None of the neighbours had the courage to lodge a complaint against them. However, a resident went to commissioner of police Alok Mittal and complained to him.
The accused, 22 -28 years old, lived in Delhi in a rented accommodation. Deepak used to contact them to come to the guest house and also provided cab facility.
All accused were produced in a court and sent to judicial custody.
