    Nothing special about Puttur, it's running in all cities and towns.
    Only when someone is caught it becomes a news item.
    It's one of the oldest professions in the world and is universal.
    Better legalise and regularise it since it cannot be eradicated.
    Same like illegal cow slaughter which can never be stopped by any law.

    Prostitution was there from the beginning of this world. Nobody can stop it. Authorities can control it. it reduces the rapes. The bulls can enjoy and spend their extra money. Its like a business. Issue trade Licence to brothels, Impose GST and heavy tax on it. Prepare invoices and keep record too. Meantime provide weekly medical test to these prostitutes with heavy charges.
