SRINAGAR — J&K Police on Monday busted a prostitution racket in a rented accommodation in Srinagar and arrested two persons who, the police said, were running the sex racket.

The sex racket was being run by Irshad Ahmad Bhat, a resident of Kadalbal Pampore, and Mohd Shafi Hajam, a resident of Karimabad in Pulwama, and others.
“The premises was raided by the police on Monday which falls in the Bagh-e-Mehtab area. Both the accused were arrested from the spot. Four sex workers and two customers, all from Srinagar, were also detained for questioning,” the police said.
“The racket was run from a rented house owned by Altaf Hussain Afaqi. An FIR under the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act has been registered at the Chanapora Police Station. As the landlord did not do tenant verification, he will also be booked,” the police said.
