Sex racket in Bhubaneswar consultancy centre
Police Commissionerate (Bhubaneswar-Cuttack) on Monday busted a sex racket that was running in the city in the guise of a consultancy firm.
The owner of the firm, Laxmi Narayan Patnaik, was arrested and four women were rescued from there.
“One of the employees turned up at the police station alleging that in the name of arranging jobs for them, the firm was forcing girls into flesh trade. Following the complaint, we conducted a raid and seized several identity cards,” the police said.
Bhubaneswar DC Uma Shankar Das said: “An immoral trafficking case has been lodged in this connection.”
“No one had thought that a sex racket could be going on inside a consultancy centre. Even the neighbours had no idea about the racket till we raided the place in Mancheswar,” the police said.
The police found it surprising that inside the consultancy centre, there were nearly 10 rooms for servicing the customers.
The police have seized a number of incriminating documents including a number of identity cards issued to girls in the name of various companies.
Nearly three such sex rackets have been busted in the city during this year so far.
