‘Kiss of Love’ Organisers Held For Alleged Online Sex Racket
Kerala’s cyber wing came across the alleged sex racket while investigating a Facebook page ‘Kochu Sundarikal’.
Eleven people including two organisers of the 2014 ‘Kiss of Love’ protests, were arrested across Kerala, on Tuesday and Wednesday morning, in a police raid led by DIG S Sreejith with the help of cyber police, to tackle alleged online sex rackets.
Sources say that the Kerala police’s cyber wing stumbled upon the alleged sex racket while investigating a complaint on a Facebook paedophile page called ‘Kochu Sundarikal’.
Online Sex Racket
Around five people have been arrested on the basis of the complaint, including the page admin, a man from Northern Kerala.
We had filed an FIR in the ‘Kochu Sundarikal’ case and decided to pursue more links. This is when we stumbled on the sex racket, though it had nothing to do with the Facebook page. First we followed the leads of one particular woman who was used for sex work and sent to clients. Then we tracked down two minors who had been brought in from Bengaluru.Senior Police Officer
Some reports say model Resmi R Nair and her husband Rahul Pashupalan were amongst those taken into custody from Kochi while an infamous ‘goonda’ Akbar, a native of Kasargod was also detained on the allegations of being involved in the online sex trafficking of minor girls.
They have been taken in for questioning. After questioning, we will decide on the next course of action.
Four among the eleven taken into custody are women, there was one minor, a native of Bengaluru, involved as well. While the police were trying to take these people into custody, three people escaped in a car, including two women and a man.
Incidentally, the complaint on ‘Kochu Sundarikal’, which led to the two alleged rackets, was filed by another Facebook page called ‘Sexually Frustrated Mallu’, members of which were also part of Kiss of Love.
This is just an investigation. Let the police prove there was a racket. Remember the Kerala police and others fabricated the entire ISRO spy scandal case, in that too a sex angle was used.Rahul Pasupalan’s Friend
The complaint against the Facebook page with photographs of minors was given by a resident of Thiruvananthapuram, who was associated with KoL and SFM movements.
The admin was operating from out of India. He is a man in his late twenties and he had come to Kerala for his own wedding. We caught him after he logged on to the page again.Police Officer
The police have also arrested others who had made vicious comments on pictures of minors.
