Women wreck Bolero, destroy foreign liquor worth lakhs in Bhadrak

Bhadrak: A group of women destroyed foreign liquor worth lakhs of rupees at Karanpali village under Bansada police limits in Bhadrak district while it was being illegally transported in a Bolero Wednesday night.

The liquor was being smuggled from Basudevpur to Dhamra area in the district, sources said.

Acting on a tip-off about the transportation of the liquor consignment, Nayakandi police chased the Bolero following which the vehicle entered Karanpali village in a bid to give a slip to the cops.

Later, Bansada police rushed to the spot and detained the driver of the Bolero while a case has been registered into the incident.
