A prostitution racket was busted late Tuesday evening by Basti Jodhewal police resulting in the arrest of two girls and the kingpins. Police raided a house at Kuldeep Nagar and arrested Harpreet Kaur and Ravi Kumar and two girls who were involved in the racket. Both the girls belonged to New Delhi and had come to the city after Harpreet lured them with money. Ravi is son-in-law of Harpreet.
The raid was conducted after a secret tip-off. "We raided the spot and arrested two girls and the kingpin" said SHO Basti Jodhewal, Balwinder Singh. He said that both girls were 18 years of age.
Police have registered a case against the accused under immoral trafficking act.
The SHO also added that a complaint against Harpreet was registered many months ago but was not arrested due to insufficient proof.
