Webdesk, TNI Mekhliganj, 24th August, 2017: The protest for banning illegal liquor sales in Mekhliganj and Jamaldaha echoed today also. Earlier yesterday, the women force had given an ultimatum to the police about banning the illegal liquor sales in Jamaldaha and Mekhliganj within 24 hours. The police also gave assurances in this regard. However, when it was found that no action was taken by the police, the women force themselves raided various residential houses and shops suspecting of selling those liquor. There were thousands of women forces that raided the houses and broke open those shops. After hearing the incident, the police came to the spots and tried to stop the women force. This led to the clashes with the police. In protest of the police action against the women force, they staged a road blockade. According to the women force, the police have backed the illegal liquor sellers and is trying to stop the protest.
