Khikha-Rüleizou Youth Organisation (KRYO) and Women Organization (KRWO) Kohima destroyed seized liquor, below Industries office, Kohima on Monday.
KRYO president Apele Suokhrie said that seized liquor worth Rs 3.50 lakh was destroyed by the two bodies in the presence of colony residents and students of Kohima Bible College.
He added that in view of the unchecked and rampant sales of IMFL and local brews through ghumtis (pan shops) and residences in Khikha-Rüleizou colony, Kohima,  a joint operation was carried out by the two bodies of the colony for two consecutive nights and seized a huge quantity of IMFL in around 13 shops and residences. 
Further, he said that the illegal liquor business has been going on openly for the last few years, however, the state government and Excise department has failed to check it. “Open sales of IMFL in the colony have attracted many negative elements and criminal activities have increased alarmingly disturbing the peaceful environment in the colony beyond tolerance”, he said.
Therefore, he said, having a sense of helplessness at the totally inefficient machinery of the state government, the youth and the women body of the colony was compelled to act against the illegal sales of IMFL and local brews. “Despite giving prior information and warning through a notification banning sale of liquor within the colony from February 22 last, no cooperation was extended, hence, seizure was carried out and they were also fined”, he added.
Meanwhile, advisor, Rhüdezou Lhisepfüko Krotho, Sosino Kesiezie said that the colony bodies initially made a humble approach requesting all those engaged in the illegal business to discontinue but since they failed to comply, they had to act upon it.
IMFL bottles, breezers and canned beer were tossed into the drainage and flushed with water. The two bodies while affirming to continue such checking cautioned that stern action would be initiated against defaulters.
