Mysore: Ten girls from West Bengal and Bangladesh, including two minors, have been rescued from a sex racket in Mysore. The CID's anti-trafficking squad raided a motel after getting a tip off by an NGO.

The police said that the hotel seems to have been built specifically for such a racket with secret rooms and hideouts and an alarm system to alert girls to take shelter in case of a raid.

The girls were rescued by breaking open a small secret hideout. They have been shifted to a rehabilitation centre. Lodge owner Lokesh Shetty and two others accused in the racket are absconding.
