Tamil Actress arrested on charges of Prostitution
Noted Tamil Actress Bhuvaneswari is again in trouble. She was arrested on Friday in Chennai for allegedly running a brothel at her residence. This is not the first time she is facing prostitution charges. She was arrested and later acquitted on similar charges seven years back too.
Acting on a tip-off from neighbors the police first sent a decoy to Bhuvaneswari’s house in Adyar she was running flesh trade. After receiving money from him, she took him to a room where two Mumbai-based models were confined. The police have sent the two models to a government house who were allegedly being forced into the flesh trade by the actress.
While initially the actress who has worked in Tamil and Telegu films as well as TV serials categorically said that the charges were false and she was with her friends she later broke down and is in a bean-spilling mode now.
"While interrogating Bhuvaneshwari, we have got some details about a few actors who are indulging in prostitution," a police officer said, adding, "We have collected contact numbers of pimps from her mobile phone. She has also given us other numbers of leading pimps. We expect to nab a few actresses who are involved in the flesh trade. She also agreed to reveal names of those responsible for her arrest."
The revelations may cause embarrassment for some top artistes as well as politicians. She said that she is ready to divulge names only if police would take action without buckling to political pressure. Police said that she was running a high profile brothel charging anything between INR 10,000 to 1,00,000 to the clients.
