Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal on Thursday claimed a minister in the Narendra Modi government was supporting a prostitution racket in New Delhi’s GB Road area.

Addressing a press conference, Maliwal has alleged that the prostitution racket worth “thousands of crores” has been operational for years and the daily business of prostitution in GB Road was at least Rs 5 crore. She claimed she has a credible lead that the racket was running under the patronage of a Union minister and an “important Delhi-based leader of a national party” under whose patronage this prostitution has been running.”

Maliwal claimed she was trying to find out the real people behind the prostitution racket which was thriving just three kilometers from the country’s parliament, when an FIR was slapped against her. Maliwal has been booked by the Anti Corruption Branch in connection with alleged irregularities in women’s panel recruitment.

“I was about to conclude the probe and find the real culprits when fake FIRs were registered against me. Now, I’m receiving messages that the central government will have me arrested and removed from my post through the office of the LG,” she alleged. Maliwal alleged that girls as young as 8 to 10 were being exploited and sold, often made to sleep with at least 30 persons every night.
