A team of Phansidewa police station in Darjeeling district based on a tip-off raided Power House area of Phansidewa on Saturday and busted a spurious liquor-making unit.

Five persons allegedly running the unit were arrested.

The police team seized several items, including fake stickers and bottles of various IMFL (Indian-made foreign liquor) brands.

“It seems that fake liquor was made at the unit and was sold across various parts of the district and even sent to the neighbouring state of Bihar where there is a complete ban on the consumption of liquor. All those arrested need to be interrogated to obtain more information,” said a source.

During the raid, the police seized 130 bottles of fake IMFL, six plastic jars of spirit, around 10,000 plastic caps, four cartons of empty bottles, stickers of multiple IMFL brands, some food colours and a pick-up van.
