Actress Poonam Dasgupta Luthra has sent a written complaint to the city police alleging sexual harassment via telephone by an "illicit escort agency running a prostitution racket". She mailed the letter to the senior inspector at Malvani police station requesting them to register a complaint. She has also sent a copy of it to the additional commissioner of police, north region, and the city police commissioner.

Poonam said she missed a call on Tuesday and when she called back, she was shocked to find out that the person at the other end was offering sexual services. "The woman was explicit and was trying to convince me in a vulgar and inappropriate manner.I immediately disconnected the call," Poonam said in her letter.

She mentioned this to her husband Naveen Luthra who called the number and was " shocked" to hear the "vulgar" recorded message.

"I am an adult who can handle the situation but what about minors, who could get lured by these agencies." This could be a huge menace to society. Strict action is required against this nuisance," she added.

Poonam, a 90s actress, lives in Marve Madh with her husband. The actress goes to cops over escort agency 'nuisance'
