Nagpur: In a major success, Social Security Branch (SSB) of city police raided an apartment building in posh and busy Gokulpeth market area and busted a sex racket being run from a flat. Two young boys have been arrested and a girl was rescued in the operation.
The Crime Branch received a tip-off that the sex racket is being operated from Flat No. 303, Third Floor, Umashankar Apartment, Gokulpeth Market. Acting on the information, cops first sent a decoy customer to the flat and ‘negotiated a deal’ with one of the accused Abhijit Shudhodhan Fulzele, who is used to lure the needy girls with ‘handsome’ money and push them into flesh trade. After the ‘successful negations,’ the accused Abhijit agreed to ‘supply’ a girl to the decoy customer. As soon as ‘deal’ was struck, the decoy customer signaled the waiting sleuths of SSB. The SSB sleuths nabbed the accused Abhijit Shudhodhan Fulzele (23), resident of Plot No. 20, Shramjivi Nagar, Ajni and Satish Bhushan Bagadkar (24), a native of Gondia and owner of the flat in the apartment building. The accused Satish Bagadkar used to make available his flat for running the sex racket. A victim girl was also rescued from the flat.
