Jamshedpur, Sept. 15: Hotel Alcor, Bistupur was reopened after the district administration opened the sealing of the premises. The executive magistrates Pramod Ram and Savita Topno handed over the keys to the senior management of Hotel Alcor. The team had on Monday inspected the hotel premises before handing over the keys.
The Jharkhand High Court had on September 11 granted permission for the operation of Hotel Alcor hotel from September 15. As per the orders, all the sealed offices of the hotel were reopened by the district administration.
Leading industrialist and owner of Alcor Hotel, Rajiv Singh Dugal had also appealed to the administration to open the sealing of his hotel and allow him to work independently in his companies located there.
“ My family has been in Jamshedpur since 1967 and we have been running many industries for the last 45 years. We provide employment to 2.5 thousand people only in JMT,” said Dugal.
In Jamshedpur, his image was that of a clean entrepreneur, but a recent incident has tarnished his image. If the police had given him an opportunity to present his case a little, he might have been satisfied with it. This was the first incident in the country when the entire hotel or establishment was sealed for so-called ‘crime’ in a room.
On April 26, on the complaint of DSP Aurobind Kumar, an FIR was lodged in Bistupur police station for conducting prostitution business at the hotel. The accused, including a Kolkata-based woman, were jailed for violation of lockdown.
