Mumbai, September 08: A couple in Mumbai has been arrested for allegedly forcing a girl into prostitution. The girl hails from Gujarat and was led into prostitution by the couple falsely luring her with the promises of a career in modeling.
The couple has been identified as as Ayaan Singh (22) and Geet Upadhyay (30) and the victim was identified as Khusboo, who is an aspiring model from Gujarat and was also friends with the accused. The incident happened in Jankalyan Nagar near MHADA, Mumbai and came into light when the victim girl was beaten brutally by her couple friends on the night of Sunday (6th of September). The couple had been forcing her for prostitution business for a long time.
As per the victim’s statement given to Mumbai Police, she came to Mumbai when Geet, who happens to be her very close friend, called her and told her that she has a great influence in the modeling industry and can help Khusboo earn almost 20,000 rupees a day. Khusboo came to Mumbai and started living with Geet but then after three days, Geet’s Boyfriend Ayaan came to live with Geet as well.
Geet then started sending her to people for different assignments but whomsoever Khusboo met, they used to ask her to get physical after which she left Geet’s place and started living with her another friend Rakhi in Charkop.
On Sunday night, Geet and Ayaan barged into Rakhi’s residence and warned her not to allow Khushboo to stay with her. When Rakhi protested, they started abusing her. The two accused then dragged Khushboo, and started forcibly taking her with them. And when Rakhi came to rescue, Ayaan and Geet assaulted her too and tore her clothes and ran away.
