Bhopal: City police on Saturday claimed to have busted a flesh trade racket operating in Koh-e-Fiza area and arrested ten persons, including five women in this case.
Acting on a tip-off that some suspicious activity was taking place at a residence in the locality, police conducted a raid last night and arrested ten persons including five women, a senior police officer said.
The place was taken on rent by one Neha Singh and her two male assistants Pankaj and Manish, Superintendent of Police (SP) North Arvind Saxena told reporters today.
He added that except Neha, the women who were spotted at the place were from outside the city.
The arrested women told police that Neha had pushed them into flesh trade by promising jobs at an event management company.
