"We have arrested Dahisar resident Sanjay Govind Das. Our probe has found that one of the women is a Bangladeshi national and is in the country on a valid visa. A case has been registered under the Immoral Traffic Prevention Act," he added.
Earlier in the day, a Bollywood production manager was arrested for his involvement in an alleged sex racket operating out of a four-star hotel in suburban Juhu.
Acting on a tip-off, the Social Service (SS) branch raided Zed Luxury Residency Hotel on Friday, arrested Bollywood production manager Rajesh Kumar Lal and rescued two Uzbekistan nationals, an official said.
