Jharkhand government will take stringent action against officials and police station in-charges concerned in the event of sale of duplicate or illegal liquor. Chief Minister Raghubar Das issued directions in this regard to chief secretary Rajbala Verma and DGP D K Pandey, an official release said in Ranchi on Monday.
