Chandigarh, May 16

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Saturday directed the police to crack down on liquor smuggling and illicit distillation of liquor to protect the cash-strapped state from incurring revenue losses.

The Chief Minister has ordered immediate action against DSPs of sub-divisions and SHOs in whose areas such activity is seen taking place, and strict proceedings against any government officer/official found negligent or supporting any illegal activity in any manner relating to distillation/smuggling/distribution of liquor, etc.

On the directives of the Chief Minister, DGP Dinkar Gupta has asked all CPs and SSPs in the state to identify liquor smugglers/suppliers/bootleggers district-wise and police station-wise by May 23.

The officers have been asked to take legal action against all such persons, including under the relevant provisions of the Disaster Management and Epidemics Act. The DGP said the Chief Minister had made it clear that due to acute economic and financial stress, the government needed to mobilise all possible revenue. — TNS
