Meghalaya BJP vice-president and Tura MDC Bernard Marak is evading arrest on charges of running a prostitution racket. Indeed what can be termed as a big expose by the Meghalaya Police, this sensational fact has come to light while investigating a minor sexual assault case that dates back to February 28 this year.

More skeletons tumbled out of the box during the raids at the so called farmhouse Rimpu Bagan which has been owned by Bernard Marak.

During the raids which began last evening and concluded at 5 this morning, the police found many young boys and girls openly drinking in the premises, inside the rooms as well as inside the vehicles and were found in compromising positions.

Accordingly, the search team detained all these boys and girls numbering around 68 nos. for interrogation. However, some of them managed to run away taking advantage of darkness. The search team also apprehended the manager, caretaker and other three staff. Later, the whole premise was searched in presence of independent witnesses and 36 vehicles, 47 mobile phones, illegally stashed liquor, huge quantity of contraceptives and other incriminating materials were recovered.

Shockingly, five children which included 4 boys and one girl were also found locked inside a dingy cabin like unhygienic rooms. All the children were in a state of shock and were unable to speak properly. All these children were handed over to District Child Protection Officer (DCPO) for safe custody and further necessary action as per law.

From the materials recovered at Rimpu Bagan as well as the design of building etc., it appears that the place was being used by Bernard N. Marak alias Rimpu and his accomplices as a “BROTHEL” for the purpose of prostitution.


All 73 detained persons have been arrested and being forwarded to the court. The main accused namely Bernard N. Marak alias Rimpu was verbally instructed to cooperate with the investigation and surrender himself at Shillong Sadar Police Station immediately. However, he has not cooperated and is evading arrest as per the West Garo Hills police.


And we have first reactions coming in from Meghalaya DGP LR Bishnoi. The Meghalaya top cop said that there are no whereabouts of Bernard Marak as of now, while his last location was traced to be in Guwahati.
