Balaghat (MP): A constable allegedly involved in the sex-racket which was recently busted by the police at Chandori village was arrested here on Thursday.

Constable Nikhilesh Thakur was arrested by the police following a tip-off. However, the kingpin, Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) Mekhraj Shreeneel, and a few other policemen were absconding.

Shreeneel was posted in Mandla district`s Bamni Banjar village and was suspended after his name cropped up in the sex racket case.

The racket was allegedly run by a Chandora-based man and his wife, already arrested by the police.

The gang also made CDs of their customers and blackmailed them, police said.
Shreeneel has moved an application for anticipatory bail before the Chief Judicial Magistrate, which will be heard tomorrow.
