On Wednesday, the Kerala police unearthed a prostitution racket allegedly involving high profile people, with the arrest of soft pornstar Reshma along with six others from a house at Kakkanad in Cochin. Reshma, who ruled the Malayalam soft porn industry after Shakeela, was apprehended by the police along with six others, including two men. Police said that the flesh trade racket was operated in a rented house.
The police reached the house on the basis of information collected from the girls who were indulging in prostitution in the Kakkanad area, a booming IT hub in the port city. According to the police, the entire ring was being operated in a house that was taken by the parties for rent of about Rs 14000 per month.
Reshma was the queen of this ring too and there were two other girls, named Simran and Ramya who are regularly seen in Reshma's soft porn films. The girls would make nearly Rs 25,000 per night and half the earnings were taken away by their brokers in the name of 'managers'.
When the police arrested them, the girls were relaxing in the swimming pool. Reshma was planning to go to Bangalore that night by flight. The native place for both Reshma and Simran is Bangalore. Reshma reportedly confessed that she had been involved in prostitution for about three years now. The police have registered a case on them and began investigation.
