CBI arrests one in J&K sex racket case
In the ongoing probe in the sex racket in Srinagar, the CBI has arrested one person, Shabir Langu, who allegedly took photographs of one of the minor girls and later transferred them into a compact disc.
CBI sources said Langu was arrested in Srinagar on Monday after sustained questioning of some of the five accused already arrested in this connection by local police.
He was produced before a designated court who remanded him to CBI custody, the sources said.
According to sources, the accused had allegedly photographed the minor girl and later transferred it on a CD using the bluetooth technology available in some mobile instruments.
The CBI also conducted test identification parade of people during which the girl identified two persons -- Mehrajuddin and Shabir Kala -- as the persons who had allegedly pushed her into the prostitution racket. Both the accused are already under judicial custody.
The CBI would soon be sending the compact disc for forensic examination. The agency would also be handing over the status report to Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Wednesday about the progress in the case.
