Mumbai, May 22: A sex racket was exposed at platform number 15 at CST station on Sunday night. Bystander Holland Gonsalves (33), a resident of Ballard Pier, smelt something fishy when he saw Reshma Vaman (name changed) with two middle-aged women at the platform.

He found it suspicious, as he had often seen the three wandering around platforms earlier. He had even seen Reshma the day before near New Excelsior theatre.

Holland Gonsalves had seen Reshma Vaman the previous day around New Excelsior, near CST 

When Gonsalves approached Reshma and asked her where she was from, she told him she was from Canada.

When he pressed on, she confessed that she was 17 years old and had been forced into prostitution by the two women with her. Gonsalves immediately contacted the railway police and soon two constables nabbed the women.

Gonsalves said, “I have often seen these women wandering around platforms but the railway police has never paid heed to this racket.”

The girl and the two women have been taken into custody of the railway police.

Even though Reshma had told Gonsalves she was a minor, in her police statement she said she was 21.

Railway police sub-inspector Harilal Jadhav, said, “We are investigating the matter. I cannot furnish any details at this point.” The women will be produced in court on Monday.
