The accused who had been arrested by the police in reference to the repackaging of liquor racket used to buy bins of 12 bottles of cheaper liquor for Rs 4000 and repack it into bottles of expensive manufacturers.
This repackaged alcohol was then provided to many vends within the metropolis.
“They would repack the liquor bought at Rs 4000 per box into bottles of high-end brands and used to sell that box (containing 12 bottles) for Rs 11,000. Many people who would want to buy high-end brands at cheaper rates, fell in their trap. Some people were their regular customers,” police sources informed The Indian Express.
The sources additional disclosed that the accused used to promote these bottles at many liquor vends in Chandigarh, and principally manufacturers which made extra gross sales had been changed with the cheaper liquor.
“It was a big racket. They managed to sell the liquor without paying any duty. The role of one of the liquor contractors has already come to light. The business was lucrative for these people as they would make Rs 14 to 15 lakh by selling one consignment of cheaper liquor,” added an officer.
Sources additional stated that liquor being served in evening golf equipment can be being checked to determine whether or not the accused had been supplying alchohol there as effectively.
