The DCP said Rohini North police received a tip-off about flesh trade being run under the garb of the salon. “We sent our constable along with the informer to the salon as decoys. The female manager lured them and asked to per Rs 2,000 per person for sexual pleasures,” Rishipal said.

After the deal was finalised and the payment was made, the decoys alerted the raiding team waiting outside the salon in plain clothes. The arrests followed.

“During interrogation, the two men revealed that they were running the sex racket from the premises for the last two months,” said the DCP.

The two also revealed that of the Rs 2,000 they used to charge from each customer, Rs 1,000 was given to the sex worker as her commission. The arrested women told police that they were willingly involved in the prostitution racket for quick money, said a police officer.
