Colombo: Sri Lanka's police on Saturday raided a brothel operating out of a luxury condominium located at a short distance from President's official residence here and arrested five women, including two foreigners, in this connection.

Police said they have arrested two East European and three Sri Lankan women who are said to have been working at the brothel which operated out of the eight floor of the Liberty Plaza shopping and apartment complex.

Police said the owner had made structural changes to the eighth floor of the apartment and established a secret staircase leading to another apartment on the seventh floor where action took place.

"This is one of the biggest raids we have carried out," a police official said.

The raid was also a serious embarrassment to the local police and security authorities as it is within a stone's throw from the Temple Trees, official residence of the president, and declared a high security zone.
