Dubai: Two Indian men have been sentenced
to three years in jail for running a prostitution racket in
Bahrain.

The duo is among 19 men and women standing trial at
the Lower Criminal Court, according to a newspaper report.
The court also sentenced nine of the Indian women for
two years each for practicing prostitution, the Gulf Daily
News report said.

All men and women will be deported after they
complete their sentences.

Court documents say the police received information
that a building in Manama was being used as a prostitution
den.

They carried out investigations and after verifying
the authenticity of the information a warrant was issued to
search the building and make arrests.
A police source disguised as a customer went into the
building and sought one of the girls.

During interrogation the women admitted to practicing
prostitution.
