Huge liquor stock seized from Bihar SHO's residence
Muzaffarpur: The Muzaffarpur range police authority on Monday suspended the SHO and an ASI of Motipur police station while removing and replacing the entire staff - there were 20 police personnel including the station house officer (SHO) — for failing to curb the rampant trade and smuggling of liquor in the police station area since prohibition was enforced in Bihar in 2016. The staff, especially the suspended SHO, Amitabh Kumar and ASI America Prasad, have been found indulging in selling the banned fluid from their official residences and even police station premises.
Senior officials who raided the police station and SHO's official residence on Monday recovered a vast stock of more than 300 cartons of Indian made foreign liquor (IMFL) bottles. Value of the bottles is yet to be ascertained.
