Dehradun (Uttarakhand): Following the orders of Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, Vanatara Resort in Rishikesh owned by Pulkit Arya – son of a BJP leader who has been arrested in connection with the murder of 19-year-old Ankita Bhandari – is being demolished. Dhami on Friday (September 23) gave strict instructions to District Magistrates to investigate all the resorts of the state. Along with this, the Chief Minister has also ordered to ensure that necessary action is taken against resorts that are operating illegally.


Dhami said that the strictest punishment will be given for such crimes. “It is unfortunate. Police are working, they have done their work for making the arrests. Strictest punishment would be given for such heinous crimes, whoever be the criminal,” he said. Three people including resort owner Pulkit Arya were arrested on Friday in connection with the alleged killing of Ankita Bhandari, who had gone missing about six days ago. Women gheraoed the Police vehicle that was carrying the accused in Ankita Bhandari murder case. The 19-year-old receptionist went missing a few days ago and her body was found on September 23. The young receptionist worked at the resort. Police said that accused confessed to having pushed her into a canal after a dispute and she drowned.


Uttarakhand Director General of Police (DGP) Ashok Kumar told ANI that the resort owner Pulkit Arya has been arrested along with two more accused in the case. Pulkit Arya is the son of former Uttarakhand Minister and BJP leader Vinod Arya. Uttarakhand Director General of Police (DGP) Ashok Kumar told ANI, “The girl went missing five-six days back. The area of the resort didn’t come under a regular Police Station area. There is a Patwari Police system here and an FIR was registered under that on behalf of the resort owner.”
