New Delhi, Sep 26: Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal on Monday issued a notice to the the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (North-MCD) to demolish illegal structures, including 'tehkhanas' or hidden cells, in the brothels of Delhi's red-light area at GB Road.

She also sought ownership records of the brothels from the North MCD within 48 hours.

Maliwal had last week alleged that a prostitution racket at GB Road in the national capital's red light area was operating under the protection of a central minister and a senior leader of a national political party.

She had promised to reveal the names of the two leaders "really soon".

Earlier, the Anti-Corruption Branch of the Delhi government had registered a case against Maliwal over a complaint of irregular recruitments made to the DCW panel. The complaint was filed by former DCW chief Barkha Shukla Singh.
