Cops pray for 5-day remand of Sunil Meher

Cuttack: The Commissionerate Police prayed to the Bhubaneswar SDJM court here on Friday seeking to take arrested sex racket kingpin Sunil Meher on a five-day remand.

Sources said if the remand is granted, the police will try to elicit information from Meher about his network through which he managed to run the sex racket.

Apart from this, the investigating police team will try to find out how Meher brought foreign young women into the State as part of his sleaze business.

Notably, Meher was arrested by the Quick Action Team (QAT) of the Commissionerate Police in Kolkata on Thursday. As soon as he arrived at the Kolkata airport on a flight from Ahmedabad, the QAT nabbed him.

Meher, who is wanted in nine cases, is notorious for running sex rackets both within the State as well as outside.
