Jiyaul Hasan, Parvez and Mohammad Faizan were arrested by a team led by Inspector Raj Kumar, station house officer (SHO) of the Mundka police station when they were taking huge amounts of liquor to Sambhal, UP, in a mini truck.

The illicit liquor bottles were concealed in cartons used for packing spare parts of vehicles.

V Renganathan, additional CP (west), said the arrests were made following efforts made to curb such illegal business in the west district.

The team of the Mundka police station was conducting checking of vehicles at a police picket when they nabbed the three men with their mini truck.

During interrogation they disclosed that there is a lot of difference in the prices of liquor in Haryana and UP.

On purchasing the liquor from Haryana and then selling it in Sambhal, UP, provides about 100% profit excluding transportation and other expenses. Hence, they were involved in such illegal business, added Renganathan.
