Hyderabad police bust prostitution racket, 2 actresses arrested


Hyderabad police have claimed to have busted a high-profile prostitution racket involving film industry stakeholders and two actresses were among the detainees.
Police identified the two actresses as Richa A Saksena, who acted in Telugu movie "June 1:43" and Subhra Chatterjee, a Bengali TV serial actor.
The arrests were made from Taj Deccan and Taj Banjara hotels.
Two 'organizers', who were identified as Monish Kadakia, casting director for Bollywood Telugu and Tamil films and D. Venkat Rao, a brothel organizer were also apprehended.
According to police, 24-year-old Richa, a resident of Mumbai and hailing from Gujarat's Himatnagar district, was "rescued" from room no 328 of Taj Deccan, while 20-year-old Subhra, from West Bengal's North 24 Parganas, West Bengal, was "rescued" from room no. 412, Taj Banjara.
Police said that Kadakia is a native of Mumbai and casting director and event manager with contacts in Bollywood and Tollywood.
He had booked the room in Taj Deccan by "procuring" upcoming actress Richa to attract the wealthy customers.
The organizer collected Rs. 30,000 to 50,000 from customers.
Venkata Rao, a native of Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh, had booked the room in another hotel by "procuring" Bengali TV actress.
This is not the first time that actresses have been arrested on charges of prostitution.
In 2014, an actress from Mumbai was caught on similar charges. However, she was acquitted by a court in December that year.
