In a recent report, the Bihar Police says that rats in the state have finished off more than nine liters of alcohol that was seized from people flouting prohibition laws.
In a recent meeting of the state police, it was said that some of the seized bottles had been destroyed, and what was left was finished off in the stores by liquor-loving rats, said a media report.
Additional Director General of Police (Headquarters) S K Singhal in a report said “We have asked the Patna zonal IG to inquire into the matter. Based on his findings, the state police headquarters will initiate further action.”
The Nitish Kumar government clamped complete prohibition in the state last April and to enforce the liquor ban, a special drive has been launched by the police and the excise department across the state.
