“We went to the house and discovered that prostitution was being practised there. We also found minor boys and girls there. The landlord escaped through a secret tunnel after we got hold of him. Although it functioned as a guest house, it also floated flesh trade,” a local said.
An enquiry revealed that Singhania had made some make-shift compartments in the premises and used to let these out to traders who came to Burrabazar for some business-related matters.
The police has registered the complaint and said an investigation was underway to nab the landlord and others involved.
Meanwhile, Singhania continues to be absconding.
