A small time film actress, who has acted in some Bollywood and Telugu films, was rescued from a prostitution racket and her pimp arrested in a raid at a five-star hotel in Goa
Panaji: Goa police today claimed to have busted a prostitution racket and "rescued" a Telugu-Hindi film actress after raiding a five-star hotel in the city.
The police arrested Ayesha Sayyad (30), who allegedly acted as an agent and provided women for prostitution at various five-star hotels in the state.
Inspector Siddhanth Shirodkar said the actress (whose name was not disclosed) and Sayyad had arrived from Mumbai by a flight this morning.
"The lady who has been arrested operated from various five-star hotels in the state. The police had sent a decoy customer to trap her and rescue the victim," he said.
Another person involved in the racket managed to slip away during the raid, police said.
The actress, who has played minor roles in some blockbuster Hindi and Telugu films, would be lodged in a state-run protection home for now, police said.
