We certainly have our share of naughty coaches here at BadJocks. But table tennis (or as most of the kid’s call it these days ping-pong)? No, we can’t recall anyone from the world of high stakes, international table tennis getting in trouble before . . . and certainly not running some kind of prostitution operation from a wealthy suburb in India.
According to reports, coach Santosh Dhanraj Lalwani, 30, and two other men would charge ” . . . Rs3,000 for the ‘services’ and Lalwani used to keep Rs1,000 with him. They relied entirely on word-of-mouth publicity. Lalwani used to take the girls to hotels to meet clients. He has told us that around 10 women work with him.”
In the end, a special police task force was able to crack the case. Best part of the story? The Indian newspaper goes to great lengths to explain that Lalwani’s wife is from a wealthy family, that she has a good job at an insurance company, and had no idea her husband was running a high priced call girl ring.
Well, of course not.
