Bhubaneswar, Mar 23:
Odisha’s twin city Commissionerate Police today busted a high profile sex racket operating in a posh apartment of Sri Vihar in Bhubaneswar and rescued a Russian sex worker.
While Sunil Meher– the kingpin of the racket and one the most wanted of the Commissionerate Police managed to escape, his aide Somesh Panda has been arrested.
The cops raided the house today acting on a tip off and arrest Panda apart from rescuing the Russian sex worker from the house. Interestingly, the Russian girl turned violent and started tossing things around and throwing sandals at the police raiding party.
“We brought her only two days back. This girl is from Russia. She charges Rs 20,000- 30,000 per customer,” said Panda confessing the crime.
“Sunil Meher is a habitual offender. He is involved in many such cases. Even though he had been arrested earlier as well, he manages to secure bail and gets back into the same business again. He managed to escape today; however, we are conducting raids to nab him,” said Bhubaneswar DCP Satyabrata Bhoi.
“We are questioning both Somesh Panda and the girl to understand further details including how the girl was brought here, how their network operates and their associates here,” he added.
