: Royal Oman Police (ROP) officials have busted a prostitution ring in Al Khuwair and arrested six expatriates, including one male and five females.
"The arrested people are all Asians. We acted on a tip off and after close monitoring of the apartment where the brothel was being run, we arrested them," a statement from the police said.
"On the basis of the evidence, the arrested have been booked on charges of prostitution and the case has been referred to court," the statement added while thanking the residents who alerted the police about the functioning of the brothel.
The police have advised the residents to alert the police on 9999 whenever they come to know of such illegal activities.
Meanwhile, the ROP officials arrested 68 undocumented expatriates last week and have deported seven after completing the legal procedures in association with the embassies.
In a statement, the ROP has also advised the residents not to provide shelter to the undocumented expatriates.
