Two models Ramita Bhandari and Sabu Shah were arrested on charges of trafficking young girls promising lucrative jobs in Singapore. After a complaint lodged by a Singapore return, Anita Nakarmi, the police has arrested the model-duo from Imadol. Anita accused them of trafficking several girls including herself in bars in Singapore. Ramita and Sabu were planning to go to Singapore on Saturday, August 14.
Ramita Bhandari hails from Hetauda and has done some modeling shots for a fashion website Cybersansar. Shah is from Samakhusi. Both Bhandari and Shah have admitted that they were dancers in the dance bars in Singapore, but they denied their involvement in trafficking.
According to Anita Nakarmi, the model-duo take Rs. 800,000 per person for beautician studies in Singapore. But, when they reach Singapore, they are forced to dance in dance bars.
The police had become more suspicious when they found two copies of passport with each of the models.
