According to police officials, the racket was operated on the pretext of running a beauty parlour.
Police were informed of some unnamed parlour running in the basement of Vasupujya Chambers. After getting the information, policemen were sent in disguise to verify the facts. The place was busted and sealed later on by a team.
"We found manager of the place, a peon, two customers and five women, who were brought to the city from various parts of the country for flesh trade.
"We are yet to know more about the network and how the customers were brought. Primarily, we got to know that they used to advertise as a massage parlour," said a police official.
