Yamunanagar, September 23

Illegal country liquor was allegedly being prepared by three persons in a godown in Shahpur Machhonda village of Ambala district.

The manufactures were reportedly supplying the illegal country liquor to several places in the state, mainly in Kurukshetra district.

This fact came to light during an investigation being done by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by Radaur DSP Randhir Singh in connection with 689 boxes of illegal country liquor recovered from a truck from near the town on September 11.

The Yamunanagar district police had arrested Pradeep Kumar of Mathana village of Kurukshetra district on September 11 and Bittu Singh of Elahawas village of Bijnor district (Uttar Pradesh) on September 14 in the case.

Sources said Bittu told the police that he, Pradeep and one Rohit Sharma started a business of preparing illegal country liquor in Shahpur Machhonda village of Ambala district.

“Rohit owns a godown in Shahpur Machhonda village. They (Rohit and Pradeep) brought me to Machhonda village two months ago. We made a plan to prepare illegal country liquor and started the business there,” sources said Bittu told the police.

Sources said Bittu also told the police that after preparing illegal country liquor, Rohit supplied it in his car to various places, mainly in Kurukshetra district. The liquor was sold at cheaper rates and the profit was distributed among the trio.

Meanwhile, Pradeep told the police that “While going to Karnal and Samalkha, one Randhir Singh of Bahadurgarh sold us ENA on the way. We bought 200 litres of ENA for Rs 15,000.”
