For the last 2 years I am vociferously raising my voice against this den of shame but the administration turned deaf and dumb towards my genuine concern. In fact, the accused tried to gag my voice through frivolous defamation suits and organizing stage manage sloganeering through street urchins against me . Now, the horrible reality of dignity,fame and pride of Swarna is hogging headlines in media and public”, she further added.
For the first time, the cops have acted swiftly and seriously leading to the bust of sex racket and subsequent detention of accused Swarna under POSCO Act, avers Anita Rana, a resident of Qasim Nagar. This is real beginning of operation swachta in our area as we were feeling suffocated with shameless activities of accused woman, added Anita.
Another resident of the area namely Darshna said “Even a blind person in the locality knew about Swarna’s shameful activities. But, how this was allowed to prosper for more than a decade exposes the functioning of cops who in the past remained mute spectators to the ugly goings on at brothel”. The accused woman fearlessly indulged in Immoral and anti social activities in residential area which has made miserable life of every law abiding citizens in the area, she said angrily.
I have been keeping a close tab on the resentment being regularly raised by aggrieved folk of Qasim Nagar against notorious Swarna and her gang. It is a matter of satisfaction that endeavors of an upright Activist who single handedly raised her voice against the evil designs of Swarna finally yield desired results. Now, with the posting of an honest incumbent SHO of Bagh e Bahu police station, hope this den of shame will never see light of the day”, avers Prof SK Bhalla.
Gopal Sharma, a resident of the area while welcoming police action said “No doubt that the sex racket and exploitation of minor girls besides sale of drugs was flourishing at premises of Swarna since a decade which was damaging the psyche of the residents.
The police should investigate the matter with entire sincerity as this racket has its tentacles spread across the length and breadth of UT, complained Khem Raj.
The accuses lady has earned money through illicit means and thus the administration should seal her premises as per the provisions of Prevention of Immoral Trafficking Act so as to it act as a deterrent for other rotten eggs, he added.
For the last several years, I am watching Swarna keep ferrying minor girls ongoing with a pimp namely Shankar Singh throughout night which has upset us, angrily said Khem Raj.
