Shaitaan - A Criminal Mind: Punjaban fancied criminals, loved good life (Episode on 26th Jan 2013)

The Inside Story

Notorious Delhi Sex Racket Kingpin's Unlucky Life

Geeta Arora alias Sonu Punjaban, at only 26 years old, was already infamous to the Delhi Police as the alleged mastermind behind one of the largest sex rackets in the NCR area. Her clients consisted of high-profile businessmen, while her employees were aspiring models and actresses. Her life, while colourful, has been fraught with misfortune.

Geeta's association with the underworld began over 12 years ago when she married Vijay Singh, an extortionist from Uttar Pradesh who belonged to the Sriprakash Shukla gang. He was killed by the Special Task Force of UP police in an encounter. Subsequently, Geeta's other two husbands also met with a similar fate.

Geeta's unique modus operandi made it difficult for the police to catch her, as she employed a number of pimps for logistics and kept a check on them while traveling in her car. Her girls were school dropouts and were paid Rs 60,000 per month on contract. Punjaban charged Rs 5,000 to Rs 15,000 for each night, and her henchmen escorted the girls to Kolkata, Mumbai, Rajasthan and Punjab. She maintained at least five houses at any given time and often switched addresses to avoid being detected.

Punjaban's association with the crime world and her notorious reputation led her to be the mastermind behind one of the most significant sex rackets in the NCR area. Her modus operandi, despite its unique and complex nature, allowed her to evade capture. Even after being under the police radar for several years, it was only after a series of arrests that she was finally apprehended in the city of Delhi.

Despite her high-profile clients and her business's profitability, Punjaban's luck ran out. She was arrested and sentenced to 24 years in prison, with a fine of Rs 7 lakh, under the Immoral Trafficking Act. The case serves as a warning to those who believe they can evade the law's long arm.
