Two actors rescued from brothel
CHENNAI: Two supporting actresses wererescued from a brothel during a raid by anti-vice squad (AVS) sleuths in Vadapalani on Wednesday. A woman was arrested for running the racket.
An AVS policeman posing as a customer first called up the pimp. After a deal was struck, the decoy was asked to come to a shopping complex in Vadapalani. He was then directed to a nearby house where Lakshmi (33) showed him two girls from Andhra Pradesh. Immediately, AVS sleuths in plainclothes caught hold of the woman and rescued the girls.
The pimp and the two women had worked as junior artists in several movies, police said. Of late, they added, pimps were accommodating girls in ladies' hostels fearing raids in hotels and lodges. The arrested woman was remanded in judicial custody. Source
