The excise department on Tuesday seized a bungalow in a raid to capture bootlegged illicit liquor of cheap rates which was packed in empty foreign-made liquor bottles with the labels of a particular army-run canteen department.
The duplicate English alcohol bottles captured from Seva Sardar Nagar were filled with the poisonous blend of locally made liquor and essence.
The range at which these bottles were sold in the Indian market varies from Rs. 68,000 - 1.5 Lakhs. The bungalow owned by Surendra Gupta has been sealed.
Let's have a look at the complete report!
The 30-year-old named Sonu, who used to transport the bottles and consignment is caught successfully by the department from Pardesipura Square, Indore.
As sources reported to WittyFeed, in a statement, Sonu has said to the Excise Department that "I can help you in getting your hands on the biggest consignment." After this, the Department investigated a lot and got the clue relating to Pradeep Neema.
In Surendra Gupta's building, Pradeep Nema, an alleged bootlegger owns a flat which he was using to store illegal alcohol.
Pradeep and people who worked for him used to mix a flavoured essence in local beverages which used to make them taste like an English alcohol. These fake English drink bottles were then transported to various renowned canteens, cafe, hotels. In some cases, they've also delivered this essence alcohol to their clients in Bhopal and Jabalpur.
The excise department, in this instance, has sealed almost 400 bottles of fake English alcohol.
Although, the investigative team has failed to catch Pradeep Neema. He has been absconding with his family when he found out about the raid.
If sources are to be believed, then the excise department has also seized the "Army Alcohol" label from the spot which suggests that the fake alcohol were sold using the label of the brands which are used by army officers.
The department eyeing the culprits to catch them red-handed.
Assistant Commissioner Sanjiv Kumar Dubey had created a task force of Manish Jain, Devesh Chaturvedi, D.P. Singh, Santosh Singh, Manoj Agrawal, Shweta Singh, Priyanka Sharma, Nidhi Sharma, and Shalini Singh.
The team has set an excellent example in front of the people about the working of law and order in the city.
More updates will be added to the story when more suspects will be retained by the department. Stay tuned.
That's all, folks!
