PRESS RELEASE

THIS IS A REJOINDER TO A NEWS FLASH IN LOCAL SOCIAL MEDIA REGARDING SEIZURE OF LIQUORS IN SAMDONG AT 4 PM ON 4.4.20.
IT IS TO CLARIFY THAT A PROPER SEIZURE MEMO WITH THE SIGNATURE OF THE ACCUSED HAS BEEN ISSUED ON THE SPOT AND THE SEIZED LIQUOR WAS REPORTEDLY KEPT AT A F LSHOP IN BURTUK AS DUE TO LOCKDOWN THERE WERE NO COOLIES TO CARRY THIS BIG CONSIGNMENT TO EXCISE OFFICE WHICH DOES NOT HAVE DIRECT ROAD ACCESS WITH THE INTENTION TO BRING IT TO EXCISE OFFICE AFTER THE LOCKDOWN. THE ACCUSED WAS ALSO SUMMONED ON 15.4.20 DUE TO TRAVEL RESTRICTION TILL THEN. THIS IS ALSO THE REASON WHY THE SEIZED CONSIGNMENT WAS KEPT THERE TILL NOW SINCE THAT FL SHOP ALSO FALLS UNDER THE DEPARTMENT^S JURISDICTION WITH PROPER LIST IN THE SEIZURE MEMO.

THEREFORE THE CHARGES LABELLED IS UTTERLY BASELESS AND MOTIVATED. IT IS TO INFORM ALL THAT THE DEPARTMENT WITH ITS LIMITED MANPOWER IS CONDUCTING CONTINUOUS MOBILE SURVEILLANCE TO ENFORCE LOCKDOWN ALL OVER THE STATE BESIDES REMAINING DEPLOYED IN ALL THE DISTILLERIES TO OVERSEE THE URGENT MANUFACTURING OF HAND SANITIZERS.
IN FACT, THE EXCISE PERSONEL DEPLOYED IN THE FIELD ARE ALSO FRONTLINE WARRIORS IN OUR COMMON FIGHT AGAINST COVID19 AND INSTEAD OF GETTING ACCOLADES IT IS HIGHLY REGRETTABLE THAT IRRESPONSIBLE ALLEGATIONS ARE BEING LABELLED WITHOUT THE DEPARTMENT GETTING A CHANCE TO CLARIFY WHICH WILL TARNISH THE IMAGE OF THE STATE ALSO.
