Meghalaya BJP leader Bernard N Marak accused of running brothel arrested in UP


NEW DELHI: Meghalaya BJP vice-president Bernard N Marak, who is accused of operating a brothel at his farmhouse in Tura in West Garo Hills district of the state, was arrested in Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday.
Marak, a former militant leader, was absconding following a police raid at the farmhouse from where six minors were rescued and 73 people were arrested on Saturday.
A court in Tura had on Monday issued a non-bailable warrant of arrest against the BJP leader.
The BJP is a part of the state’s ruling Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA), led by Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma‘s NPP.
Marak has alleged that he is the target of political vendetta by the CM and fears for his life. Rubbishing the allegation, Deputy CM Prestone Tynsong said the government allows the police to act as per their wisdom. “Law is law irrespective of any party and whether or not he is part of the government. Unpleasant things have happened and we will let the law take its own course,” Tynsong said.
Police earlier said they rescued the minors based on a tip-off, and seized hundreds of liquor bottles and condoms, besides dozens of cars from the farmhouse, ‘Rimpu Bagan‘. Marak is facing charges under various sections of the IPC and the Immoral Trafficking (Prevention) Act, 1956.
He has more than 25 criminal cases registered against him since the early 2000s across the North-eastern state.
