On a tip-off today, sleuths of the Commissioner's Task Force busted high profile prostitution rackets by simultaneously raiding the Taj Deccan and Taj Banjara hotels at Banjara Hills, and nabbing a Mumbai-based casting director and a brothel operator. The cops also rescued two film actresses in the operation.
The organizers were identified as Monish Kadakia of Mumbai (a casting director for Bollywood, Telugu and Tamil films) and D Venkat Rao of Guntur district. One Janardhan alias Jani was absconding.
One of the two actresses is a Tollywood starlet, and another is a Bengali TV serial artist.
The police also seized cash of Rs 50,000, six condoms packets, three mobile phones and one car from the possession of the arrested duo.
While Kakadia is an event manager and a fashion show organizer with contacts in Bollywood, Venkat Rao has a criminal record already as a brother organizer.
