Manorama to be booked for employing minor

Suspended JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi is in fresh trouble after a minor domestic hand was found at her home on Wednesday.

During a search at Manorama Devi’s home, a child domestic hand was found to have been employed by the absconding MLC, making her liable for prosecution under the Child Labour Act.

The district administration took the child under its care and Labour Department officials interrogated him.

The child has identified himself as Dev Nandan Kumar and gave his age as 14 years, District Labour Superintendent Rakesh Ranjan said.

The boy said he was a resident of Chatra in neighbouring Jharkhand and was employed at the MLC’s home only 8 days ago, Ranjan said.

After recording his statement, the Labour Department officials would take the boy to the Child Welfare Commission, he said.

“We would than give a prosecution notice in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate for action against MLC Manorama Devi and her husband Bindi Yadav under Section 86 of the Child Labour Act,” Ranjan said.
