Reacting to the stock checking raid by excise and taxation department on the house of Charanjeet Singh Bajaj at Sarabha Nagar two days back, Ludhiana Wine association Wednesday asked the department that they must keep a strict check on smuggled liquor in the city.
Though department was not able to find any discrepancy in the raid, the association stated that officials must check their details properly.
Bajaj has around 15 liquor vends in Ludhiana and is an old liquor contractor. The members said that they are paying revenue to the tune of Rs 333 crore annually and department is still harassing them rather than keeping a check on smuggled liquor.
Bajaj said that smuggled liquor business flourishes well in Dhoka mohalla, Daba road, chitti colony etc areas and they themselves have employed their teams to keep a check on this business.
