Subscribe to Oneindia News

Bengaluru, July14 : The IT city is advancing at a high pace. And Technology is helping flourish unique aspirations and dreams in the city that is experiencing massive migration of the working class.

If you are looking for lucrative jobs, its here. But this particular job requires you to be handsome. No, it is not modelling. Going through an advertisement featuring a website 'Locanto' will certainly make you stop for a minute when it reads 'adult jobs in Bangalore'. 

Male prostitution

A click at adult jobs leads you to job offers that are termed illegal under Indian law; 'Male Prostitution'. There are many illegal escort companies ready to provide a job if one fulfills their conditions.

OneIndia did a brief 'layer 1 investigation' on these, contacting the advertisers to understand the recruitment process. A classified read, "Live life King Size. Give pleasure and earn money call now to join."

This correspondent got in touch with a person Teji Singh (name changed) whose name and contact number was divulged in the advertisement. "Yes we are hiring males who are ready to offer sexual pleasure to our female clients," a soothing voice said.

He cut to the chase without wasting a second. "Send me your details immediately to this number through Whatsapp. Your name, age, location, a photograph. Following this, I will instruct you how to go about it,"  he said and disconnected the call.

After details were sent to his mobile, he sent a note on his escort company. The name of the escort company is 'Erotica' (name changed). Astonishingly his note said the company was a registered company and was registered in 2007.

In the next lines he provided further details: Read the details below

In a next text, Robin Sigh sent, bank account details saying "pay Rs 2500 fee to register your name." This amount will be for three months of membership. The account detail he sent was

Name: Sonxx

IFSC: SBIN000xxx

However, a quick Google search on the IFSC to track the branch popped out an account with a Khira branch of a well-known Government Bank in Himachal Pradesh. It has to be noted that the company does not provide services in Himachal Pradesh.

Services beyond Gender

Another escort company (name not mentioned in the advertisement) placed a contact number of a girl Bhavani (name changed). A call, she in a rugged tone said "pay Rs 10,000 fee for three months of membership. We will provide you services. You can earn up to Rs 30,000 per day.

On asking when and where the payment can be done, Bhavana questioned, "from when you can start your work." On learning the joining date to be after 2 two days, she said, "then call after two days" and dropped the call.

On calling again and preponing the date of joining that very day, she demanded a call after 10 minutes. A call after 10 minutes revealed: "since there is no service today in Bengaluru, you cannot start work. Please ring me tomorrow, send your details. I will send account number."

A phone call to three other such companies had similar hiring patterns. All demanded details on Whatsapp. Many such companies have issued advertisements but cannot be reached.

A senior crime branch officer from Bangalore told this correspondent that it is a pan-Indian scenario and is not exclusive to Karnataka. "They sit in one state and run their racket in another state online. In many instances, they are untraceable." It's beyond our reach now, the officer admitted.
