Varanasi, Aug 01: The International Sex Racket has been busted by the police officials here on Tuesday. Eighteen women, including 16 from Nepal, who were part of a prostitution racket were rescued in New Delhi, police said today.
By collecting the information, Varanasi Crime Branch and the Delhi Police jointly raided a house under Vasant Vihar police station limits in Delhi yesterday.
The police said the women were confined to the house for the past few days and were soon going to be trafficked to Gulf countries.
The police also arrested three men. The Nepali women were lured with the promise of jobs and were first brought to Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, said the police official.
Two Nepalese women managed to escape from the clutches of the traffickers in the first week of July. They told Nepal police about the racket, who in turn contacted the Nepal embassy, the official said.
