Women raze liquor shop

Bhubaneswar: Disgusted with free flow of liquor, over a hundred women took law into their hands and demolished a country-made liquor shop in Pandera area under Mancheswar police limits on the outskirts of the city today.

According to sources, the women from neighbouring areas armed with lathis and brooms ransacked the shop and destroyed all the wine bottles kept inside the shop. The angry women too broke the asbestos roof and grills of the shop, the sources added.

“We were forced to do this as the administration didn’t pay heed to our plea for closing down or shifting the shop elsewhere,” a protestor explained.
