An attack upon Rita Sen and Reshmi De, residents of Malugram in Silchar by a group of people who were operating a sex racket in Meherpur area of this town, has widened the nexus that has been going on between sex operators and political bigwigs.

Police officials of Rangirkhari Thana were initially reluctant to register and case on Thursday evening itself, but for pressures by the local residents, had to register a case against those who inflicted cut wounds upon these two sex workers.
On Thursday night itself, Ezafa Begum, the kingpin who ran this sex trade from an apartment in Meherpur, her two accomplices Rupak Roy and Bulti Nath, were arrested.
The matter took a tacit turn when the mobile phones of Rita Sen and Reshmi De were taken from their possession. Many names came out and so also some photographs of people who are highly respected in various circles of Barak Valley.
Taking into cognizance the graveness of the matter, Superintendent of Police (SP) Cachar, Rakesh Roshan, attached Silchar Sadar police station officer-in-charge Indrajit Chakraborty along with officer-in-charge Rangirkhari Sahabuddin.
Speaking to Northeast Now, SP Cachar, Rakesh Roshan said, “No one would be spared for we are investigating into the matter very minutely.”
