The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) on Monday busted a sex racket operating out of a spa in a mall in Rohini.
The DCW received a complaint by a man who claimed to be a journalist that a sex racket was operating out of a spa -- 'The Attraction Spa' -- in City Centre Mall in Rohini.
The journalist said he had gone to the spa centre in the mall and pretended to be customer. He alleged that the spa offered him different girls at different rates there.
After receiving the information, the DCW team reached the spa centre and informed the police. Around 11 girls, believed to be sex workers, have been taken to the Prashant Vihar police station to record their statements.
An FIR has been lodged with regards to this case. However, no arrests have been made so far.
DCW chief Swati Maliwal has issued a notice to the police to ascertain reasons why no arrests have been made so far. The DCW also issued a notice to the Women and Child Development Ministry to further look into the case.
"Prostitution is taking place big time in the Capital and many spas are becoming safe havens for it. I fail to understand why the Women and Child Development and Delhi Police do not take strict action against the same. Spa centres need to be regulated so that they don't run trafficking rackets," Swati Mailiwal said.
