Posters of ‘Playboy jobs’ in Uttarakhand
Pauri Garhwal Police have launched an investigation after signs reading “Playboy Jobs, Male Escort Jobs” were put up in the Uttarakhand city of Kotdwar. The posters were pasted on the walls of the Kotdwar bus station, the railway station, almost all the main squares, and even in the offices of the Kotdwar police circular officer and the city police station.
Reports also suggest that the posters were also posted on the premises of the police station. After images of the poster went viral on social media, the police launched an investigation into the matter. The poster, which offered gigolo jobs, was plastered all over the Kotdwar city of Dehradun. “Playboy jobs! Children can earn between 5,000 and 10,000 rupees a day by joining the escort company,” said the poster, which also had a WhatsApp number.
ASP Kotdwar has said that the CIU team has been working since this morning. At the same time, appealing to people not to fall under the guise of such a scheme and company. Because there is no such company that can give five to ten thousand rupees in one day.
He said that for the first time in Kotdwar, Playboy posters were put up on the same night. The police night patrol team is investigated and the CCTV cameras installed in the city are also investigated.
These posters have been placed mostly in those areas, where the maximum number of young people frequent. These signs will be placed outside bus stops, banks, liquor stores, and various business showrooms to attract youth.
Police launch probe
A police officer aware of the matter told TOI: “Residents reported the posters to the police. We dialled the mobile number mentioned on the sign but it was turned off. Subsequently, he was placed on surveillance. The last location tracked through the number was near the border between Delhi and Haryana.”
Inspector Vijay Singh, an officer from the Kotdwar Police Station, confirmed the development. He told TOI, “Until now, no complaints have been received regarding the matter. However, the police became aware of the matter and opened an investigation. The identity of the accused will soon be known. Those involved in the incident will be arrested.”
