Manoj, along with his team, then planned a sting operation on Aarti and contacted her as one of the clients. According to the sources,
Mittal sent pictures of two women on PI Sutar’s phone and told him that these models will come either to Juhu or Goregaon-based hotels. Sutar booked two rooms in Goregaon and sent two dummy customers. Mittal arrived with two young women and also gave them condoms. All of this has been recorded on spy cameras.”
Later, the hotels were raided by the Social Service Branch in Mumbai, where Aarti was caught red-handed, and an FIR was filed against Aarti at Dindoshi Police Station.

We have arrested the alleged accused for running a prostitution racket in the film industry and supplying models to customers to earn money.
