Salon raids put 14 behind bars

A police team from East Singhbhum’s anti-immoral trafficking cell on Friday raided six men’s parlours in Sakchi and Golmuri police station areas and arrested 14 persons, including 12 women, for allegedly indulging in “immoral acts”.

According to sources, the raids, which were led by nodal officer of the anti-trafficking cell V.N. Sinha, were conducted after the police received a tip-off about a sleaze racket running under the cover of men’s salons in Sakchi, Kashidih, and Garabasa in Golmuri.

“A special team, consisting of police officers and women constables, was formed and we first raided a salon at Kashidih’s Line No 1. A number of video CDs, a DVD player and contraceptive pills were seized,” Sinha, also the inspector of Jugsalai-Bagbera police circle, said.

He added that they raided another salon in the same area, but could not nab anyone as the customers had fled by then. Other parlours in Sakchi and Golmuri were the next targets. Arrests were made from there.

“We believe that the parlour owners were in touch with each other and hence, the news of the raids spread, giving ample time to the customers to escape,” the officer said.
