The Mumbai Police arrested popular Bhojpuri actress Suman Kumari, for allegedly forcing models into prostitution and running a sex-racket. The police received information about a sex racket operating in the Royal Palm Hotel located in the Aarey Colony area. The police, determined to apprehend the perpetrators, sent in an undercover officer posing as a customer named Suman Kumari to the hotel.

It wasn’t long before the actress, who shares the same name, fell for the trap and agreed to the deal. She was caught red-handed while negotiating a price of 50,000 to 80,000 rupees for every model. Suman Kumari, the actress, has been accused of being a broker in the sex racket and providing models to customers.

These models, who had come to Mumbai to pursue a career in films, were in a vulnerable position, struggling to make ends meet. Suman Kumari took advantage of their situation and forced them into prostitution.

Suman Kumari, who is just 24 years old, has acted in several Bhojpuri films and comedy shows like Bap Numbri Beta Dus Numbri. She has also worked on the Boom OTT channel.

The arrest comes days after television actress Aarti Mittal was arrested from Goregaon for running a prostitution racket.

The Facts of the Matter

For young models struggling to make ends meet, the prospect of a lucrative career in the entertainment industry can be tantalizing. However, the harsh reality is that many of them find themselves exploited and thrown into the murky world of prostitution.

What makes it all the worse, is when such rackets are run by influential figures, something which lends a sense of credibility in what’s deeply disturbing and inhumane.
