Patiala, May 19

The police on Tuesday raided an illegal liquor manufacturing unit at a house in Ghanaur’s Pabri village and sealed it.

The police arrested house owner Darshan Singh and seized 20 drums of ENA (ethanol neutral alcohol) and a few empty ones. A case has been registered at the Kheri Gandian police station.

Patiala SSP Mandeep Singh Sidhu said the accused would be interrogated to know who all bought liquor from him.

Dashan Singh is a former panchayat samiti member and member of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD)

Last week, an illegal distillery-cum-liquor-bottling plant in Ghanaur was busted. Khanpur Khurd Congress sarpanch Amrik Singh and Dipesh Kumar of Rajpura, among others, were booked in this connection. The distillery, which was being run in a cold store, was operational even during the lockdown. The distillery was using ethyl alcohol, which is used to manufacture sanitiser.
