Two constables were allegedly caught running a sex racket from inside the police outpost in UP’s Pilibhit district.

The accused police constables were also allegedly blackmailed people using escort services to trap victims, TOI reported.

The matter came to light after an audio of the exploited woman went viral on social media.

Senior police officials reached the police station after the audio recording surfaced on social media.

 The two constables reportedly had roped in a few girls who at first used to call customers over to a place close to the police outpost as specified by the two cops.

Soon after, they would conduct a raid on the spot and would extract a heavy bribe from them under the threat of prosecuting the customers for illegal activity.

It was later come to light that the accused cops also sexually exploited these women repeatedly and pressurised them to trap and blackmail young boys.

The constables have been suspended following the incident and a departmental inquiry has also been ordered into it.
