Mumbai: A spa in Versova was recently busted by the police for running an illegal flesh trade, according to a report in Mid-Day. The property that was raided belongs to actress Priyanka Chopra, which she had leased to Charisma Spa. Priyanka’s mother Madhu and her brother Siddharth were also present when the spa was launched.
A source was quoted in the tabloid saying, “This property belongs to Priyanka Chopra and her mother’s clinic is situated next to this place. The entire floor (measuring 3,000 sq ft) belongs to Chopra. In the beginning of this month, the police had raided this place after they got to know that it was being used for sex trade.”
Three women were rescued from the spa. The police have arrested Dinesh Chandrakant, the manager, while the owner Manik Soni is absconding, the report stated. The actress owns the second floor of Vastu Precinct Building in Andheri measuring 3000 sq ft.
The investigating officer of the case confirmed to the tabloid that the property belongs to the actress and said, “We are searching for Soni who is still at large, once he is arrested we would get to know the details of the agreement between him and the actor.”
Priyanka was reportedly unaware of the flesh trade happening at the spa, and completely trusted the owners. She is very disturbed to learn about this incident.
Another source was quoted saying in Mid-Day, “She (Priyanka) was not aware of the fact and trusted the owners. She may take a decision whether to continue with the lease or no.”
