The Odisha police busted a prostitution racket at a guest house in Shasan, Dhenkanal, on Sunday. The guest house owner, along with his son and a woman, was arrested for allegedly operating the sex racket.

The police rescued many women from the guest house, though three persons fled the spot.

The preliminary investigation alleges that the father-son duo, who owns the guest house, were running the racket for quite some time. The police added that women from Dhenkanal and Angul were part of the sex racket.

Local residents were suspicious about the guest house activities and informed the police. The modus operandi of the racket is being invested, while the rescued women have been sent to a correction home.
