Puducherry, Nov 18: Puducherry Excise police today seized 70 cartons of liquor worth several lakhs of rupees from a vacant plot near Ozhukarai municipality building.
According to excise sources, the liquor bottes, manufactured in 2001, and crossed the expiry date were meant for destruction.
Since, separate permission from the government was required to destroy outdated liquor, a private bar owner had discreetly brought the bottles at the site to destroy it.
The excise police on a tip-off seized the liquor bottles.
A case has been registered against the owner of a bar here, the sources added.
