Police on Sunday busted a flesh trade racket by arresting seven people, including five women.
Inspector Raj Kumar, SHO, division number 7, said they raided the spot following a tip-off. They sent a policeman disguised as a customer to the spot. Jaswinder Kaur, an accused, demanded Rs 1,000 from him. Later, the police team conducted the raid.
The police arrested two customers and five women in a compromising position and registered a case against them. The kingpin, Jaswinder Singh, fled.
Reportedly, the women are from Jagdishpura area on Tajpura road. Apart from Jaswinder Kaur, the other accused have been identified as Ashok Kumar of Sunet village, Rajesh Kumar of Dhuri Lines, Poonam, Rekha, Bindu and Rajveer. All have been booked under the Immoral Trafficking Act.
One of the girls is unmarried while the other four are married. They said that they indulged in flesh trade due to the poor financial condition of their families. Jaswinder Kaur used to charge Rs 500 to 1,000 from customers.
"We will produce the accused in court on Monday, and we have launched a manhunt to arrest the kingpin," said the SHO.
