In a separate incident, CADA Jiribam District Committee confiscated around 100 litres of local made liquor today from an auto rickshaw at Kalinagar at around 8 am today.
Regarding the seizure of the huge quantity of liquor, president of the district committee, Th Ratan maintained that the manufacturing, selling of liquor at villages in the name of tradition and indulging in such business at the time when the district in particular is hard pressed due to COVID-19 outbreak, was appalling.
He also stated that concerned authorities will be approached to take up stringent measures against all involved in the business.
It is better to destroy or dispose of the liquor before it ruins the lives of many, he continued while saying that the district committee will join hands with other CSOs to impose a strict ban on the sale of liquor in the district.
