Bhubaneswar: ‘Kishore Bhaina Mutton’ hotel in Odisha capital, famous in the city for serving mutton curry, was today razed to ground by the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) due to encroachment.
The roadside eatery located near the Doordarshan Centre here was demolished with bulldozer.
The civic body had earlier cancelled the food registration of the hotel and sealed it after detecting irregularities during a raid.
As per reports, a surveillance team of the BMC inspected the hotel and found that all standard guidelines for food safety were being breached. The hotel was serving stale crabs besides using expired additives like sauces and harmful food colours. The food was also being prepared in extremely unhygienic conditions.
It was found that the owner was running a full-fledged hotel business and earning in lakhs while he had a license for vending street food like ‘gupchup’ and ‘dahi bara’, and was paying only Rs 100 tax towards it.
