Administration seized 3 shops

The relatives of six people who lost their lives after consuming spurious liquor were cremated without informing the police. On getting information about this, ADG Zone, DIG, DM, SSP and Excise Officer reached the spot. It is being told that the poisonous liquor was purchased from indigenous liquor contracts of Karsua and Andala. Five liquor shops have been sealed, with all local liquor shops closed. At the same time, the liquor found from the possession of the victims has been sent for investigation. The police teams caught hold of three people including a liquor mafia and took them into custody for questioning. So far 6 people have been arrested in this connection.

NBT approach

Poisonous liquor is continuously killing people in the state, but the responsible people have failed to rein in this business. In case of any incident, the officials suspend themselves from their responsibilities by suspension, but after few days the game of illegal liquor starts again. There is a need to take strict action against the culprits by breaking the nexus of liquor mafia in the entire state, so that this bloody business can be curbed.
