Karnal, December 1

The Excise and Taxation Department has imposed a fine of Rs 16.69 crore on four liquor wholesalers in the district after 1.70 lakh cases were found missing from their warehouses during an inspection when the Covid-induced lockdown was in force.

The step has been taken on the basis of a report of a committee constituted by the DC.

The committee found a stock of 1.7 lakh cases of liquor missing from the godowns, hinting that the four firms having seven wholesale shops had allegedly sold the liquor during the lockdown.

The Centre had imposed a ban on the sale of liquor between March 26 and May 9.

"We have imposed a fine of Rs 16.69 crore on four firms as their stock did not match with their records. We found 1.70 lakh cases of liquor missing from the stock which was checked online on March 25 and May 9," said RK Nain, DETC (Excise).
