Seedy parlours on radar after sex racket bust

KOLKATA: The and of a woman at a parlour in Kyd Street has blown the lid off illegal sex rackets thriving under the garb of unisex salons and massage parlours in the city. A day after three persons were arrested for cheating, gang rape and forced prostitution, officers of every station on Sunday were asked to form special teams to make a list of beauty and massage parlours in their areas, check what goes on inside and conduct raids at the suspicious places.

In the early hours of Saturday, a 30-year-old woman from Tiljala alleged that she was gang-raped before being pushed into sex trade by a group operating the Moon Unisex Beauty Parlour on Kyd Street. A preliminary police probe has found a number of such parlours around Lenin Sarani, SN Banerjee Road, Bentinck Street, Creek Row and MG Road. Cops said that on Sunday, most of those parlours were closed.
