New Delhi: Delhi Com­mis­sion for Women on Satur­day was in­formed that there were more than 5,000 spas op­er­at­ing in Delhi against the 498 fig­ure cited by the three mu­nic­i­pal bod­ies. The women’s panel was up­dated about the fig­ure by a search en­gine to which DCW had ear­lier is­sued a no­tice seek­ing in­for­ma­tion on the num­ber of spas reg­is­tered on its portal.

The com­mis­sion had con­ducted sev­eral in­spec­tions across the city and busted al­leged sex rack­ets op­er­at­ing in these spa cen­tres. It had been in­formed that sev­eral ad­ver­tise­ments of spa and mas­sage cen­tres were avail­able on this web­site and had sought de­tails on them.

“This is com­pletely con­trary to the sub­mis­sions by the three mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tions that have stated that 498 spa cen­tres are op­er­at­ing in the cap­i­tal. South Delhi Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion said it had 297 cen­tres in its zone, while its north coun­ter­part claimed it had 127. East Delhi Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion said there were 60 spas op­er­at­ing in its zone,” said Swati Mali­wal, DCW chair­per­son.

Mali­wal added that till date, no ad­vi­sory has been is­sued by any of the cor­po­ra­tion against cross gen­der mas­sage.
