    The couple was also reportedly thrashed by the Mahila Samiti members

    Sivasagar Police on October 18th, 2019 busted a sex racket and arrested a married couple from Assam’s Sivasagar town. The couple was nabbed by the members of Arohan and Jagriti Mahila Samiti, local NGOs and were later handed over to the police. The couple has been identified as Ajgar Ali and Usha Begum.

    As per reports, acting on a tip-off, the NGO members raided one Jinnat Ara Begum’s rented house located in the town’s Amolapatty area. The Samiti allegedly caught the wrong-doers red-handed.

    Ali and his wife were running the “illegal business” for a long period of time, the NGOs alleged. The couple was also reportedly thrashed by the Mahila Samiti members. Later, Sivasagar Police reached the spot and rescued the couple. Meanwhile, the women’s body has lodged an FIR.
