The concocted liquor was repackaged in small cartons and sold at a shop owned by one of the accused individuals.
In a significant crackdown, the police in Madiyaon, under the jurisdiction of the Madiyaon police station, uncovered an illicit liquor operation. Acting on a tip-off, law enforcement officers seized 624 bottles of adulterated liquor and 2.5 kg of urea from a residence located in Nandapuram Colony.
It was revealed that the house had been transformed into a makeshift factory for blending smuggled liquor from Chandigarh with urea. The concocted liquor was then repackaged in small cartons and sold at a shop owned by one of the accused individuals.
In response to this illegal operation, the police have initiated legal proceedings against five individuals under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Excise Act. Subsequently, two suspects, identified as Shivam Jaiswal (21 years old) and Adarsh Jaiswal (18 years old) from Sitapur, were taken into custody.
However, three other suspects remain at large. These individuals include another Shivam Jaiswal from Madiyaon, his mother Poonam, and their friend and driver Dharmendra Jaiswal.
The raid on the premises resulted in the seizure of 624 liquor bottles, neatly organized in 52 boxes, along with 525 small cartons. Additionally, 2.5 kg of urea was confiscated from the site. It is noteworthy that all cartons were equipped with scannable barcodes, raising questions about how the accused individuals acquired them.
During the interrogation, the apprehended suspects admitted to their involvement in the operation. They revealed that they were working under the guidance of Shivam Jaiswal from Madiyaon, who orchestrated the smuggling of liquor from Chandigarh. The adulterated liquor was then sold at a shop owned by Shivam’s mother, Poonam, located in Mohammadpur Saraiya, within the Bakshi Ka Talab area.
