BHUBANESWAR:  Twin City Police on Friday secured a four-day remand of notorious pimp Sunil Meher who was arrested on Thursday.

While Nayapalli police had moved the Bhubaneswar SDJM for a five-day custody of Meher, the court limited the remand to four days.

Meher’s interrogation would reveal crucial details about women trafficking and prostitution rackets in Odisha and West Bengal, a police official said. “Meher is part of a larger network which is spread across the country. He sourced young women for clients in the State from Mumbai, Goa and Bangalore,” the official added.

Besides, police will try to ascertain whether he was involved in bringing the Kyrgyzstani woman, who was rescued from a rented flat in Chandrasekharpur in the City on March 23.

Meher was arrested by a special police team from Kolkata as soon as he arrived at the airport on a flight from Ahmedabad. Meher, who is wanted in nine cases, is notorious for running sex rackets both within the State as well as outside.
