Police arrested in Sex racket granted bail


Puducherry: A local court at Puducherry has granted conditional bail to four former police personnel, who were accused in the child prostitution case. Justice C V Karthikeyan granted conditional bail to the former cops Anusha Basha, B Kumaravel, V Rajaram and T Sundar. The accused persons, who surrendered earlier, have to sign the register in Yanam Police station in morning and evening.

Two accused persons, former Sub-inspector R Balakrishnan and former Head Constable M Selvakumar and former Constable G Panderinathan, were granted conditional bail last month. The Madras HC had earlier granted bail to two other accused in the case, Inspector V Yuvaraj and Constable G Sankar. The racket came to light after two minor victims approached Child Welfare Committee (CWC) and explained about sexual abuse by the accused. The minor girls were given soft drinks laced with sedatives and they were pushed into the sex racket by accused Pushpa, Arulmarie, S Ragu, M Manicam, Santhana Jayapragash, Vimalraj and Prakash.
