Six people arrested by the Nelamangala police for illegally selling liquor at roadside dhabas in violation of Supreme Court’s orders. A few hotel premises were also raided on Wednesday night following complaints from locals.
Manoj, Thirumala, Whyty, Fishland, Narthaki and other roadside dhabas were found serving liquor illegally. The liquor bottles were also recovered by the Police.
Few customers fled the scene once they spotted the cops. The arrested were all employees of the dhabas.
The police said,
“Most of the dhabas do not have licenses or permission to serve liquor. The dhabas would store liquor illegally and serve it to customers. As most of the bars and restaurants and wine stores on the highways have shut, the dhabas are making a fortune by selling liquor.”
