Zone II DCP Chinmay Pandit, who busted a high profile sex racket being run at Hotel KP Inn in Dhantoli, Nagpur, in the wee hours of Thursday (September 20, 2018), has informed that the Russian women rescued during the raid have Aadhaar cards with a registered address of Delhi.
While speaking to Nation Next, DCP Chinmay Pandit said, “During the raid, we rescued the two women who have Aadhaar cards. The cards suggest that these women are residents of Delhi. But based on our investigation and the accent of the two woman, we are of the opinion that these women are in fact Russians. We are yet to check their passports. It seems that the women indulged into the flesh trade to earn money for their livelihood.”
On Thursday, following a tip-off, DCP Pandit and his colleagues from Dhantoli Police Station laid a trap to bust the sex racket being run at Hotel KP Inn. Policemen, posing as clients approached the agent Pranita Jaiswal (43), who sent pictures of the two girls to the police officers.
The policemen were then asked to book rooms in the same hotel where the two girls had checked-in. Pranita then came in a car to take money from the policemen. It was then that the police raided the hotel and nabbed Pranita and her driver Nikhil Shende (26).
During the raid the two women were also rescued. Jaiswal and Shende have been booked by Dhantoli Police under sections 370 and 34 of the IPC and sections 3, 4, 5 and 7 of the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act.
As per the police, the sex racket involves some high profile people. DCP Pandit said, “The racket involves some high profile people. We are investigating the case and hope to get to the bottom of this soon.”
