Bhubaneswar: The Commissionerate Police (CP) claimed to have busted a prostitution racket operating from a rented accommodation under Nayapalli police limits in Bhubaneswar on Thursday.
The police have arrested two persons including the owner of the house from where the illegal activities were going on and rescued three sex workers. During the raid, the police seized some objectionable items from the room of the rented house.
Notably, the capital city is gradually turning into a hub of the illegal sex trade. The police have busted four prostitution rackets in the city this month.
On May 19, the police had busted a high-profile prostitution racket and rescued eight Thai girls after raiding a spa centre in Bapuji Nagar area in the capital city. During the raid, police also have arrested seven youths.
Last November, Kharavela Nagar police had rescued three Thai women involved in the illegal trade. The sex racket was operating in the guise of a Thai spa.
