KATHMANDU, Jan 17: Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Prem Bahadur Ale has warned of taking action against those involved in leasing out and using the property of Narayanhiti Durbar Museum for a pittance.

Minister Ale reiterated that he would not spare anyone involved in illegal activities. He said so while inspecting the physical structures created by Batas Group on the premises of the Narayanhiti Durbar Museum on Sunday. "There are many lapses in the permission given to run a restaurant in the Museum. Various structures were created without permission. Anyone working against the law will not be spared," he asserted.

He wondered how a cafeteria could be built by effacing the identity of the museum. It was found that a dance restaurant and pub were being built in the museum, Minister Ale said after inspecting the museum on Sunday. 

Batas Group is now under huge criticism after it created additional structures in the museum, going beyond the agreement.
