HYDERABAD: The spa that was raided by Cyberabad Special Operations Team (SOT) on Sunday had been operating from the same building rented for eight years, but never caught the attention of law enforcement. The spa is said to carry out illegal activities such as prostitution and provide services such as transgender massages to paying customers, including women.

Detectives in the Madhapur area who were briefed on the activities carried out decoy operations before striking on Sunday, resulting in the rescue of eight women and the arrest of lead organizer Chittibabu Arigela aka Sumanth from West Godavari district in the Andhra Pradesh. Chittibabu had rented a building in a prime locality in Kavuri Hills in Madhapur and initially opened a salon and spa.
Two floors of the building have a living room, while the other three floors housed the spa. It had also put in place advanced equipment and facilities for its customers.

It gave the impression that the spa was functioning with all the required permissions and that there were licensed therapists providing services to the clients. Sources claim that after providing massage and salon services, the organizers would entice them with transgender massages and also solicit prostitution. They paid 4 lakh of rent per month to the owner of the building.

“Services for intercourse were also offered to men and women in the spa and they were billed accordingly,” officials said. Senior officials are now checking to see how the spa didn’t come under their watch and if there was any compromised activity which helped them escape standby for such a long time. Chittibabu and his associates have been sent into pre-trial detention, while the women rescued from the area are transferred to a foster home in accordance with court orders.
