Hyderabad: A prostitution racket was busted by the North Zone task force on Saturday night, after raids were conducted on Taj Deccan Hotel in Banjara Hills. The police and arrested a film casting director and a brothel organiser and rescued two well-known actresses from Tollywood and the Bengali film industry. The raids were conducted shortly after midnight following a tip-off. The operation ended in two hours with the police apprehending the director and the brothel organisers  and rescuing two actresses, police said. 

The brothel organisers were identified as Monish Kadakia, a 56-year-old casting director and event manager of Bollywood and Tollywood, a native of Maharashtra, and Dabbera Venkat Rao, 40, a brothel organiser from Guntur.  “The organisers collect Rs 30,000 to Rs 50,000 from customers,” said P. Radhakrishna Rao, DCP, commissioner’s task force, and added that the bookings were done online. 

 

The police apprehended the two men and seized Rs 50,000, six condom packets, three mobile phones and a car from them. Star hotels in the city have become an ‘adda’ for brothel organisers. Hotel managements often go scot-free in ‘high profile’ prostitution cases.

“There will be no action against the hotel managements as their role has not been established,” said A. Venkateswara Rao, DCP, West Zone. “The hotel managements do not have any idea about the activities going inside the rooms. So, there will not be any case against them,” said V. Ravinder, inspector Punjagutta.

 

Using hotels for prostitution is not new. The law says that one can make them accountable as their place is being used for the commission of the offence, be it hotel, lodge or an apartment. However, a good part of exercising law is also done by the other side. The management should be cooperating with the laws provided to stop this menace. The law in this regard is adequate which includes sealing the place, but it is never done,” said Sunitha Krishnan, a social activist and chief functionary and co-founder of Prajwala, an NGO that rescues, rehabilitates and reintegrates  traffickking victims.
