The infamous sex racket that rocked Jammu and Kashmir recently took a violent turn on Friday after an agitated mob brought down the house of the prime accused in the racket involving top politicians, bureaucrats and police officer in the state.

Since early morning, angry mobs had started gathering at different places in various localities of downtown Srinagar.

According to police, they later marched to Chinkran Mohalla where they ransacked and later razed the house of Sabeena, the alleged kingpin in the sex racket who is already under police custody.

Sabeena and two youths allegedly produced a 30-second pornographic CD that brought the scandal to light in March. However, the scandal shook the state after a girl claimed that she was forced into prostitution and that some politicians and security officers were allegedly involved in the racket.
