From where this liquor was being sold at a price lower than the government rate. According to the police, the Excise Department was getting information about this racket for a long time. It was told that a gang was supplying branded liquor at a price lower than the government rate. The Excise Department conducted the investigation at its own level. It was revealed that rebottling was taking place in branded liquor bottles. Instead of liquor, bottles are being filled with thinner.
Difficult to differentiate between real and fake
Drinking it causes intense intoxication in the beginning, but later this chemical starts damaging the organs inside the body. Since the liquor bottle is duly packed by machine and hologram is also attached. Therefore any customer can get fooled after seeing this. ACP Monica Deshwal said that based on the input received from the Excise Department, the raid was first conducted on the liquor vend located at Neelam Chowk. Two accused were arrested in this. When he was interrogated, this fraud came to light.
