MCD starts demolition drive on Baba Virendra Dev Dixit's ashram in Rohini

New Delhi, Jan 30 (UNI) The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) on Tuesday started the demolition drive in Baba Virendra Dev Dixit's 'Adhyatmik Vishwa Vidhyalaya' ashram in Vijay Vihar, Rohini from where several women who were kept under illegal confinement were rescued in December 2017.
An MCD official said,"the demolition drive was started in the afternoon on the illegal construction of Baba Virendra Dev Dixit's ashram."
"Though late, but MCD has started the action. If this would have not been done, then on the upcoming court date, what face would they have shown. The Baba's fort will now be destroyed, where young girls were exploited," Delhi Commission for Women chairperson Swati Maliwal said in a tweet.
Earlier this month, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had registered three cases relating to different allegations, including rape, criminal intimidation, wrongful confinement, assault and voluntarily causing hurt against the self-proclaimed godman.
The probe agency had also constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) in the matter relating to 'Adhyatmik Vishwa Vidhyalaya Ashram', Rohini, on the orders of the High Court.
