The Crime Branch investigating the Gulf sex racket case conducted raid on the office of Suresh, who is suspected to be the kingpin behind the racket in Gulf countries, along with Lissy Sojan.
According to sources, the name of Suresh, a native of Valapad in Thrissur, was revealed by Lissy Sojan during interrogation by Crime Branch officials. Suresh was allegedly running the sex rackets in the entire Gulf region with the support of Lissy Sojan. “Lissy Sojan had been operating the racket on behalf of Suresh in the Gulf countries. Suresh has several business establishments in Kerala and abroad.
He was the person giving financial support to Lissy Sojan for sending women abroad. Lissy Sojan was first a victim of the racket operated by Suresh. However, after several years, she was handed over the charge for running the illegal business in Gulf countries,” sources said. The police had conducted raids on the residence and offices of Suresh in his native place.
Crime Branch officials said that the establishments run by Suresh were registered in the name of his relatives while he was investing the money. The Crime Branch has seized documents, computers and laptops from the office. Suresh is presently residing in the Gulf and attempts would be made to arrest him with the assistance of Interpol, CB sources said.
