Bokajan, August 13: Despite the State Government’s ban on the sale and consumption of IMFL brought from other States, the Assam-galand inter-State border area has witnessed rampant trading of the same as the authorities concerned have failed to put a restriction on it. Recently, a joint team of excise officials and Khatkhati Police raided a hotel stationed a few yards from the border check post, some 13 km from here. The search led to the seizure of 15 cases of illegal liquor. The seized assignment even possessed alcoholic beverages meant only for defense use. This proves that the alleged negligence of the excise officials is now in turn causing huge loss of revenue to the State exchequer. In another incident, a three-member team of jourlists halted two mini trucks carrying IMFL in a petrol pump on Wednesday evening. The excise officials were called in for verification who later released the assignment on finding it legal.
