It is to be noted that the police of Siliguri Metropolitan Police have nabbed several people running such businesses under the guise of spas inside many famous shopping malls in the city. While the police have been running a continuous campaign to bring an end to such practices in the city, they have not been successful in uprooting the menace completely.

The police started investigating the whole matter.
