New Delhi: In a major crackdown, Gurugram Police raided a guest house operating as a front for a prostitution ring. The operation, conducted by a joint team of the CM Flying Squad and local police, resulted in the arrest of 10 individuals, including four foreign women.

Authorities uncover illicit activity

Acting on a tip from informants, authorities suspected illegal activity at a guest house located in G Block of Sector 57. To investigate these suspicions, a special police team devised a sting operation. An undercover officer posed as a potential client, contacting the guest house manager, Sanjeev, and expressing interest in their services.

Sting operation leads to bust

Negotiations between the undercover officer and Sanjeev culminated in a deal. Following this agreement, the officer signaled the waiting police team, who immediately raided the guest house. Inside, authorities found six women, aged between 24 and 34, allegedly involved in prostitution.

Foreign nationals caught in the web

The raid revealed a concerning international dimension to the operation. Among the detained women were two from Uzbekistan and two from Bangladesh. Notably, the Bangladeshi women lacked valid visas, indicating their possible illegal entry into India.

Guest house operators held accountable

The investigation also identified Dilbagh and Sanjay as the masterminds behind the guest house operation. Both individuals now face charges alongside the arrested women.

Legal proceedings and ongoing investigation

Police have registered a case against all ten accused under the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act and the Foreigners Act. Following their initial court appearance, the arrested individuals were remanded to judicial custody.

Authorities highlighted that this guest house had previously drawn scrutiny in 2023 for illegally hosting foreign nationals. In light of this history, a thorough investigation is underway to expose the full extent of the operation and identify any potential accomplices.
