New Delhi, July 30 (ANI): A Delhi Court on Saturday dismissed the bail plea of Pritindra Nath Sanyal, a prime accused in a high-profile sex racket.

Sanyal was arrested on July 20, after which the Saket court sent him to three-day police remand.

The I-T department had on July 2 raided Sanyal's residence, during which letter heads of two Members of Parliament, Naresh Agarwal (SP) and Jagdambika Pal (BJP) were found.

As per reports, he is accused of impersonated MPs and flaunt their clout with bureaucrats. Sanyal is also accused of sending WhatsApp messages and SMSs posing as politicians to get work done.

Police also suspect that his Safdarjung and Vasant Kunj properties may have been used for prostitution.

A 23-year-old Russian woman was also in Sanyal's residence during the raid on July 2 and it was this that reportedly triggered the police investigation of the alleged sex racket. (ANI)
