Pune,Mar 12, 2012: A man was arrested on Saturday for allegedly trafficking women from Mizoram on the pretext of training them for spa work but, instead, coercing them into flesh trade. The operation was jointly carried out by the city crime branch and the Mizoram police.

Speaking to TOI, senior police inspectorBhanupratap Barge said the Mizoram police had contacted the Pune police after receiving a complaint against Coil on March 1.The case was registered under the Prevention of Immoral Trafficking Act.

"Our team gathered information about the suspect and his activities in the city. We raided his flat in Karvenagar in the wee hours of Saturday after the Mizoram police reached here," he added.

Barge said there were some men and women in the flat at the time of the raid. The police also found out that Coil had taken away all the original certificates from these men and women. When the police questioned them, they said they had come to Pune for spa training. "Five women told the police that they did not want to pursue the training and wanted to go back to Mizoram."

Barge said the police also found out that the suspect had started an institute for spa training in the flat. "We are verifying the details of the institute."

He said that Coil was produced before the court, was granted transit remand and sent to Mizoram for further investigations.
