Two ferrying liquor killed in Vadodara road mishap

Two persons allegedly ferrying liquor were killed when their car rammed into a roadside tree near Bhilapura village, around 20 km east of Vadodara, on Vadodara-Dabhoi highway on Wednesday morning.

The accident took place when driver of the car, Yasis alias Batuk Kakuji, lost control and hit the tree at around 6.30 am, Dabhoi police said. Both Kakuji and Wasimshah Diwan, who was travelling with him, were killed on the spot. "They were resident of Vadodara but originally hailed from Dabhoi. They were on their way to Vadodara," police said, adding their bodies were handed over to their respective relatives after conducting postmortem in Dabhoi.

As the car turned turtle, 72 bottles of Indian Made Foreign Liquor worth Rs 7,200 and 12 small bottles worth Rs 600 lay scattered on roadside.

Police said they also recovered 50 empty tins of beer. "We suspect passersby might have emptied the tins," police added. "We are investigating if the duo were booked by police in the past for ferrying liquor and also trying to know in whose name the car was registered," Dabhoi police inspector Bharat Barot said.

Dabhoi police have lodged a case of accidental death and have booked Kakuji and Diwan under Prohibition Act.
