Patna: The deputy mayor of a Bihar town was held with two call girls from a hotel room here, the police said Tuesday.

Gaya Deputy Mayor Mohan Srivastava was arrested late Monday night from a posh hotel room here during a police raid.

“Srivastava was caught along with two call girls in a hotel room,” a police official said.

According to police officials, six people, including Gaya’s deputy mayor, were arrested in connection with a sex racket when police raided a hotel near Frazer Road in the heart of Patna.

They were taken to the Kotwali police station for questioning.

It is for the first time in Bihar that a deputy mayor has been arrested in connection with a sex racket. Gaya is about 100 km from Patna.

Last month, Gaya police busted a thriving sex racket at a gents’  hair cutting parlour running on premises owned by Mohan Srivastava.

Srivastava, however, denied ownership of the premises where the alleged sex racket was going on.

He later admitted that the premises belonged to his wife but claimed he has nothing to do with the property.
