Majithia exposes CM’s claim about Tarn Taran SSP not receiving complaints regarding spurious liquor

Chandigarh, Aug 14 (UNI) Former minister and senior Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Bikram Singh Majithia on Friday exposed chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh’s claims that former SSP Tarn Taran Dhurv Dahiya had not received any specific complaint regarding hooch production by releasing two written complaints submitted to the SSP by local citizens on his personal whats app number.
While releasing the two complaints which were sent on June 14 and 16 to the SSP with details about manufacturing and distribution of illicit liquor in Tarn Taran, Mr Bikram Majithia said the Chief Minister was defending the indefensible by supporting a tainted police officer who has earlier been accused of robbery in Khanna. “The Chief Minister should spell out his compulsion for going out of the way to defend the controversial police officer”, he added.Asserting that even while trying to defend Dahiya the chief minister had let the cat out of the bag, Mr Majithia said Capt Amarinder credited the police officer with recovering a huge amount of ‘lahan’ which is used for manufacturing country made liquor.
“This inter-alia means that Dahiya did not do anything to recover the spirit which was used to manufacture the spurious liquor which led to hundred deaths in Tarn Taran”. He said the Tarn Taran police proceeded against illicit liquor maker Sukha Mehmoodpuria, who was a close associate of Khem Karan legislator Sukhpal Bhullar, only after the hooch tragedy. “If SSP Dahiya had done his duty before the tragedy and acted on the complaints of local citizens who even gave him names and license plate numbers of vehicles used by the liquor mafia this huge tragedy could have been averted”.
