Saket Court granted bail to Retired Colonel Ahlawat on Friday in a high-profile sex-racket case in Delhi. Retired Colonel Ahlawat was arrested on November 10 in a high-profile sex-racket case in Delhi after he had come to the Saket court to surrender. Ahlawat was then sent to three-day police custody.

Ahlawat used to work as a pimp for an accused called Sanyal. Sanyal, 62, was arrested earlier in connection with the trafficking of women from Central Asian countries and for running a sex racket. The matter first came to light after Sanyal's residences in Safdarjung Enclave and Vasant Kunj in Delhi and also in Lucknow were raided by Income Tax authorities in June. During the search, incriminating documents indicating his involvements in illegal activities like human trafficking and impersonation came to light. Documentary evidence in the form of WhatsApp messages and SMSes were seized from phones at his residence at Safadarjung Enclave.
