Major Liquor Seizure on Ahmedabad-Rajkot Highway: Rs 25.50 Lakh Worth of IMFL Confiscated from Hidden Compartment

Ahmedabad: In a significant operation, Bavla police seized a substantial quantity of Indian-made foreign liquor (IMFL) valued at Rs 25.50 lakh. The operation took place on Thursday evening near the Bavla-Dhedhal crossroads along the Ahmedabad-Rajkot highway.

Constable Merubha Dodia of the Bavla police filed an FIR, revealing that a crucial tip from a member of the prevention of crime branch (PCB) in Ahmedabad led them to intercept a truck suspected of transporting illicit liquor. Following the tip, Bavla police successfully located and searched the tanker, leading to the arrest of the driver, 34-year-old Chaandmal Mena, a resident of Udaipur. Mena is currently in police custody.

In a separate incident, an ammonia-laden tanker collided with a tourist car near MES College junction in Vasco. Fortunately, no injuries or leakages were reported in the accident. The tanker, belonging to V K Patel Translines, was en route to a fertilizer company in Zuarinagar. The company’s safety officer and other officials promptly arrived at the scene to ensure the secure transportation of the ammonia cargo to its intended destination.

Despite the completion of repair work on a damaged water pipeline, residents of Andheri (East) are grappling with a persistent water shortage for the fifth consecutive day. The BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) had initially assured that the water supply would be restored by Monday evening. However, areas such as Lokhandwala Complex, Juhu Koliwada, and Chapel Lane are still experiencing water shortages. The demand for water tankers has surged, with prices soaring between Rs 8,000 and Rs 15,000.

The entire K-West ward, encompassing Oshiwara, Four Bungalows, and Juhu, is grappling with inadequate water supply, causing inconvenience to students, office-goers, and residents alike. The BMC explained that the water pressure can only be sustained once the reservoir is adequately filled, a process expected to take several more days. The crisis has led to exorbitant rates for water tankers, highlighting the severity of the situation faced by the residents.
