AIZAWL, Oct 14 – Mizoram police has sought production warrant from a local court to bring the owner of a beauty parlour in Goa to Aizawl who allegedly tried to force four Mizo girls into prostitution, police said.
Three persons were arrested in Aizawl and five in Goa in this connection and the police were still searching for one of the main accused who is absconding, Superintendent of Police of Aizawl, Lalbiakthanga Khiangte said.
Four Mizo girls, working in the beauty parlour since early September were asked to comply with the sexual overtures of their customers, he said.
