BENGALURU:The women's wing of the Central Crime Branch (CCB) has busted a second prostitution racket in the city in less than a week, arresting two men and rescuing five women, an official said on Wednesday.

"We have arrested two accused, Satish and Raja, for running the prostitution racket at Yeshwanthpur, " CCB Deputy Commissioner of Police Kuldeep Jain told IANS.

The duo was running the prostitution racket at a lodge in Yeshwanthpur locality of the city.

In less than a week's time, this is the second prostitution racket to be busted in this tech city amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

"Indulging in prostitution amid the pandemic is doubly more dangerous. Nobody knows who has coronavirus and there is a high chance of inhaling the other person's micro droplets which can lead to infection, " warned consultant pulmonologist Punnam Pradeep Kumar.

He said that people with HIV will be more susceptible to Covid-19 amid the pandemic.
