Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], Jan 5 (ANI): The Kolkata Police on Friday raided the residence of a person in Burrabazar after locals complained of a sex racket being operated out of it.

The locals complained about an illegal sex racket being run by the landlord, Pramod Kumar Singhania, who calls himself to be a follower of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.

"We went to the house on December 25 and discovered that prostitution was being practised there. We also found minor boys and girls there. The landlord escaped through a secret tunnel after we got hold of him. Although it functioned as a guest house, it also floated flesh trade," a local told ANI.

One hidden tunnel was found through which the landlord had managed to escape.

An enquiry revealed that Singhania had made some make-shift compartments in the premises and used to let these out to traders who came to Burrabazar for some business-related matters.

The police said an investigation was underway to nab the landlord and others involved. (ANI)
