Liquor seizure in poll season shoots up

Tuesday, October 14, 2014
By Suresh Golani

With elections just round the corner, accompanied by a spell of dry days, the Konkan division of the State Excise department has intensified vigil on illegal trafficking of liquor in the region. So far the special flying squads seized country booze and Indian Made Foreign Liquor (IMFL) worth more than Rs 8.42 lakh including the vehicles used for transportation. While around 179 cases under the relevant sections of the Excise Act have been registered, 106 people including notorious bootleggers have been arrested in this context. The increase in such smuggling activities is being attributed to the election period, when politicians are known to dole out cash and distribute liquor to party workers and voters.
