Women vandalise liquor shop in Jajpur village


Jajpur: A group of women vandalised a liquor shop near a petrol pump at Adampur village in Nathuabar panchayat of Jajpur district on Friday.

The aggrieved women destroyed a large number of liquor bottles kept inside the shop. The agitators protested the opening of a liquor shop in the locality.

“Existence of the liquor shop has affected the family lives of the local residents. Despite complaints on several occasions, the officials concerned have failed to shut down the shop. Therefore, we decided to take the matter into our own hands”, one of the agitators said.

The women today marched towards the liquor shop and vandalised it alleging that a law and order situation will be created if the liquor shop opens in the area.
