I shot this from the window of one sex-worker. Pimps like him are hired by many Kothas and according to the sex-worker they double up as goons. They rob, intimidate and assault customers. The clients are usually too embarrassed to report it to the police and even when they do the police intimidate them further by asking what they were doing in the red-light area in the first place and that they will report this to their parents/ spouses .
