Aundh, 16th June 2022: The social security cell (SSC) of the Pune city police has exposed the prostitution business run under the name of ‘The White Willow Spa’ massage center in Aundh.

A total of six young women from Assam and Manipur, including a model from Mumbai, have been released after arresting a man from Assam.


Police have arrested Sufian Jamaluddin Ahmed (23), assistant manager of The White Willow Spa. However, owner Venkatesh Tipu Rathod (38), manager Devisingh alias Liladhar Shankarsingh Chavan (30), flat owner Abhinav Ramnath Vajpayee and Mona Ramnath Vajpayee are yet to be arrested.

According to police, the spa centre was being operated from a flat in Riddhi Lotus, Madhuri Park CHS, near Kotbagi Hospital, Aundh. After getting tip-off that prostitution racket is going on under the garb of spa, a decoy customer was sent to verify the information.

He alerted the police after the customer paid for and accepted the online payment for the ‘extra service’. Sitting on the counter, Sufian saw the police coming on CCTV. So the spa door was closed. Sufian entered the AC duct through the window of the flat with two women to escape. From there he reached the upper floor and tried to escape through the window. However, they were caught.

When questioned, the detained woman said she kept the female employees in a flat in a neighboring building. Accordingly, the police went there and released the other women.
