This wedding season, doling out honeymoon packages to attract prospective customers has become order of the day and prostitution networks are no exception to the rule.

The Noida Police has recently busted one of such raunchy rackets. The gang offered similar services apart from one time sex service.

Acting on a source based information, the police raided bungalow number A-36 in Sector 41, Noida and arrested Samir Khan, a software engineer, along with his two accomplices Anand and Prem on November 9. Two prostitutes were also arrested.

The Police, however, could not arrest kingpin Davinder Kumar Sagar, who managed to escape the spot.

During interrogation it was revealed that lavish bungalows were booked for this purpose. The network used to place ads by the name of 'Friendship Club' or 'Massage Service' in leading newspapers in which only mobile phone numbers were mentioned for contacting them.

Comprehensive honeymoon packages were offered to the clients including businessmen, politicians and highly placed government officials.

Other than providing a 'bride', the package comprised of transportation, stay, sightseeing trips, imported condoms and even sex enhancing pills!

The rates for such packages costed a customer around Rs. 50,000 and then it varied according to the duration of the stay and the 'category' of the girl. The gang had also booked a honeymoon suit in Simla and the other one in Mussourie for a year.

Police has recovered one computer, a laptop, imported condoms, pills and keys to Shimla and Mussourie hotel rooms.

According to cops, three bar girls from Mumbai belonging to the same group were arrested about eight months ago from a bungalow in Sector 55, Noida.
