Women ransack liquor shop in Bolangir village
Bolangir: While a group of women ransacked a liquor shop at Badababejuri village under Patnagarh block in Bolangir district on Wednesday, a complaint regarding the incident has been lodged today.
The members of a Self Help Group (SHG) of the village alleged that consumption of liquor had led to a scuffle between the residents in the village. They also broke hundreds of liquor bottles stocked in the shop and took away Rs 3450 from the counter.
The agitating women further alleged that people of the area have to pass by the liquor outlet facing security threat and nuisance from guzzlers.
The women alleged that despite complaints, the authorities have failed to take steps to shut down the shop. Police inaction has forced them to take matters into their own hands.
A case (24/19) under the relevant IPC sections has been registered, the police said.
