DIMAPUR, SEP 4 (NPN) | Publish Date: 9/4/2020 12:46:30 PM IST

Chümoukedima Village Council (CVC) has questioned the excise department in connection with the recent unearthing of an illegal spurious liquor manufacturing unit from 7th Mile Model Village by Assam Rifles and Dimapur police.

In a press release, CVC chairman Razouvotuo Chatsu said the exercise has exposed the “sheer incompetence” of the excise department of the state. CVC said it was “baffling” that the responsible department was “oblivious of a nefarious racket of this proportion, set up and smoothly running right under their nose”. CVC said this has “only evoked presumptive questions on the credibility of the entire excise department by the public.”
Further, CVC expressed concern that a few depraved people were willing to play with precious lives by indulging in such unethical businesses. CVC expressed the view that the racket entails a thorough enquiry since it was “evidently clear that a bigger nexus is involved in it.” CVC demanded that the state government set up an investigation team led by capable and incorruptible officers to pursue the case and bring “all those criminals involved” to book and award stringent punishment as per provisions of law. 
Meanwhile, CVC has lauded the “successful operation” of 5th Assam Rifles. It also expressed gratitude to 5th Assam Rifles for the yeomen service in keeping the society safe from antisocial elements. CVC said the busting of illegal liquor unit has saved countless lives and reposed the faith of the public in the service provided by the security forces.
