Three Gurgaon policemen were allegedly assaulted after an inspection team found men in possession of illegal liquor in Tigra village in Sector 57, Gurgaon. The injured personnel were rushed to a private hospital and one of them suffered serious head injuries.
According to police, on Wednesday night police visited Tigra village after they received a tip-off that country liquor was being sold in the open at expensive rates. They spotted a person selling liquor and when they questioned him, he allegedly asked police to mind their own business.
Constable Ajeet Kumar said, “We reached the village around 8 pm and saw a man selling country liquor along with snacks. We asked him if he had a licence to sell. He retorted that he did not require a licence.” The man was later identified as Manoj Kumar, a resident of Tigra village.
