Provide Aadhaar before hiring 'escorts' in Goa: Spooked by police crackdown, pimps demand details over WhatsApp

Five young men from Delhi who flew into Goa for a bachelor party recently discovered that banks and cellphone companies aren't the only ones demanding Aadhaar details, according to a report in The Times of India.

According to the report, when the group landed in Goa, checked into a hotel, called up a contact and enquired about hiring five women, the individual on the other end promised to revert soon.

When the contact called back, he demanded a picture of their Aadhaar card through WhatsApp.

According to the report, pimps in Goa have been attempting to verify the customers' details to ensure they are not police decoys.

"Even after so many checks, the number of girls demanded will not be delivered. Pimps refrain from supplying many girls at once because if 5-10 of them are caught in one police raid, their entire earning collapses," a police officer was quoted as saying by The Times of India.
