Hyderabad: The city police have clamped a
ban on employing women at massage centres that provide
services to male customers.
The ban would also be applicable for men though police
have so far not found men doing massage to female customers in
the city, Police Commissioner A K Khan told reporters today.
"The ban shall be imposed from July 1 and massage
centres should not employ women for doing massage to male
customers and vice-versa," he said.
The order also covers massage centres at star hotels
in the state capital, Khan said.
House owners allowing their premises to be used for
flesh trade will face strict action, he warned. "Such premises
will be sealed."
Of late massage centres had become a hub of illegal
and indecent activities in the city, he said.
Police had recently arrested 50 persons, including 31
female workers, for allegedly indulging in indecent, obscene
and illegal activity in the name of massage.
