The sleuths took six hours to dispose of the illegal liquor. The officials disposed it by digging a pit on the premises of the bar and emptied one bottle after another.

Gradually, the alcohol had slowly seeped into the soil and mixed with the water. Later, the alcohol-water was pumped to tanks. And it led to the comedy of errors.

However, the irked residents have approached the Chalakudy municipal secretary and health department to take action against the excise officials.
