They have been booked under MCOCA for running from GB Road the biggest trafficking and prostitution racket with its trail stretching up till Nepal.

During sustained interrogation of Damodar, it has been revealed that he is an active member of the criminal syndicate. He used to be the Manager of Kotha No. 64, 3rd floor, G.B. Road, Delhi. He used to collect money from the customers and give it to Afaq Hussain and Saira Begum, the owners of the Kotha. He used to manage all the day to day activities of the Kotha and kept watch on the activities of “nayikas” and the victim girls.

Damodar came to Delhi and started plying an auto rickshaw in 2006,. He came in contact with Afaq and Saira about 6 years ago through his elder brother Ramesh Pandey, who was working as their driver. Ramesh has already been arrested in the same case.

Damodar, who was arrested on 18 October near NPL Parade Ground at Kingsway Camp here, has studied up to 6th standard. He is married and has two children. His family lives in Nepal.
