Panaji: A 35-year-old woman was arrested from Mumbai on the charges of running a prostitution racket in the coastal state, local police said on Wednesday.

A team of Goa Police, led by Deputy Superintendent of Police Sammy Tavares and Police Inspector Uttam Raut Desai, yesterday apprehended Shahin Pathan from the suburban Nalasopara in Thane district adjoining Mumbai, they said.

Shahin, who is termed as a kingpin in the entire scam, used to lure Mumbai-based girls under the guise of providing them jobs in casinos and in dance bars in Goa, a senior police official said.

These girls would later forced into prostitution through an organised inter-state racket, he added.

The accused could be nabbed after a 25-year-old woman, who managed to escape from the clutches of the racketeers, spilled beans on the flesh trade.

The accused was brought to Goa today morning and was being presented before a court for remand, added police.
