18 women rescued from Goa prostitution den

Panaji, July 1 (IANS) Eighteen women, most of them from northeastern states and Nepal, were rescued after a raid on a Goa night club which doubled up as a prostitution den, police said Monday.

Two people, including a pimp and the night club’s owner Ronnie Chakravarthy, were arrested after the Saturday raid in Calangute, said police inspector Nilesh Rane.

“The victims are mainly from Manipur, Sikkim and Nepal. There was a Goan girl too. They had been hired as waitresses and dancers, but in fact they were used for prostitution,” Rane said.

The official said he was not sure about the age of the rescued victims, adding that they had been sent to a government-run home.

Calangute, located 20 km from Panaji, is one of the most popular beach villages in Goa and known for its night life.
