When it comes to booze there is no comparison to what and how much one can get in Punjab. However when we talk about Ladakh, those smuggling illicit liquor are finding no way to get out of the net of administration.

Illicit liquor has become a major problem in many states and UTs of the country. While common people do not know what their respective governments do with the bottles of illicit liquor, Ladakh is setting an example and also showing it to the world.

Officials from Excise Department of Ladakh destroyed around 270 litres of illicit liquor which included around 144.75 litres of Indian Made Foreign Liquor (IMFL), including whisky, rum and vodka; 16.5 litres of wine and 109 litres of beer.

The Department booked eight different cases in Excise range Leh-Kargil between May to September. Illicit liquor was imported to Leh from Delhi through Air India chartered flight in four cases.

The bottles are not being kept in storage but destroyed by Ladakh administration by moving a vehicles on them.
