Nagpur: Framing the new rules for the game, the duping business has evolved in Nagpur to take a fresh new face which conserves its innocence till you are actually duped. If latest trend is anything to go by, Nagpur youths are allegedly falling prey to this new found tactics to extract money from them. This time the tool of vastly expanded racket is sex. Either get to play or serve as gigolo.- a male sex worker!
It starts with a phone call!
Don’t get carried away if you get a call offering you the sex services to satiate your libido or even a proposal for you to honey trap you into fake lure of being a Gigolo.The net amount lost by Nagpur youths in this racket runs into lakhs. So it goes two ways, both have similar intent – to make a big hole in your pocket and by the time you realises the truth, you are already cheated!
However Nagpur police claimed ignorance on the rampant trend. Talking to Nagpur Today Additional Police Commissioner (Crime Head) Ranjan Sharma said that he was unaware of such activities and if he receives any complaint he would certainly act against the doers.
Using sex as bait
In one of many such cases the youth get mobile numbers of girls who provide escort services through friends or even agents of these gangs. The youth makes a call on the number provided. Right from the start, the voice on the other end oozes oomph and seduction. The female voice starts an interview sort of dialogue where she gets all the details of Full Name, Age, Occupation, Address, Marital Status, Physical Appearance (height, weight, built) etc. Then the female voice informs you of various services provided by the girls registered with them. The female voice goes on to give explicit details of the girls, their built, the intimate and professional services they offer etc. (Somehow the female at the other end reads your liking and offers just the kind of escort services which the person calling them wants).
Here’s the Catch!
Now comes the real catch! The female voice at the other end asks the caller to deposit a particular amount in a bank account. These bank accounts are normally not of Nationalized Banks. So alluring is the wooing that the youth promptly deposits the amount into the account. He then waits for a response from the other end to confirm the escort services. However, even after hours he does not get any response. All his calls then goes unanswered or is informed that the number is switched off.
Out of shame, embarrassment and ignominy, the caller chooses not to lodge a complaint with the police nor inform anyone about how he was duped.
Twist in the Tale
Recently, some youth received a call from a female who claimed her name as Riya Malik. She claimed to be an agency which is recruiting youth, healthy, well-built youth as Gigolos. (Gigolos are male commercial workers). The female caller Riya Malik informed the youth that he will have to become a member of their Giggolo Club based in Pune (by paying a sum of Rs 3,100/-) which provides discreet male-escort services to many young girls and women. The female caller Riya Malik got all the details of Full Name, Age, Occupation, Address, Marital Status, Physical Appearance (height, weight, built), colour complexion etc.
The female caller Riya Malik claimed that the youth will not only get paid for having sexual intercourse with girls and women but will enjoy it too (giving detailed description of the kind of girls and women who avail their services). However, the youth would have to give some percentage of the money received to their Club (30% to Club and 70% to the individual). Another condition was that he would be taken by a four wheeler of the club and escorted by the club’s personnel (pick-up and drop services to avoid wastage of time in searching addresses).As many as 36 meetings with female clients will be fixed. This registration will be valid only for three months. The female voice Riya Malik said that they provide services all over India. Riya claimed that the Club’s number is operational from 10 am to 6 pm.
