Women ransack liquor shop in Coastal Orissa

Kendrapada, Apr 25 : The women of Baro community and its nearby villages today destroyed a licensed liquor shop in their village here.

Over 50 women of the Baro community under Nikirai police station have ransacked the liquor shop and destroyed the liquor bottles worth over several lakhs rupees.

According to Bikram Kumar Sahu, the salesman of the Baro-based licensed liquor shop, the women of the locality, with the help of some local youth, came to the shop and asked him to come out.

When he did not pay any heed to their demands, the irate mob barged into the shop and threw the liquor bottles and set the signboard ablaze.

Nikirai police station officer-in-charge Manasi Patra said police had registered a case in this regard.

The salesman alleged that the women took away a cash of Rs 50,000 from the counter box after assaulting him.

No arrest has been made so far, police said, adding a ”legal action would be initiated against the women as per law”.

The women said they were forced to take law in their hands as the authority did not pay any heed despite repeated pleas.

In November last, hundreds of women, including college-going girls of Baro, had detained Energy Minister Atanu Sabyasachi Nayak along with two ruling party MLAs on their way to a party meeting at Pattamundai demanding closure of the shop.
