An official on Monday said that the police have seized a stock of liquor worth Rs 5.17 lakh which was being transported illegally in Maharashtra's Palghar district, reported news agency PTI.


On Monday, Superintendent of Police Balasaheb Patil told reporters that as the model code of conduct is in place for the June 26 polls to four Maharashtra legislative council seats, police patrolling has been stepped up in the district, reported PTI.



He said during an 'All Out Operation', the Wada police got a tip that some persons were smuggling and illegally transporting liquor, reported PTI.


Accordingly, the police on Sunday carried out checking and found a tempo parked near a plastics company at Hamrapur Phata on Wada-Manor road with no one around.

The tempo was carrying boxes of liquor of various brands, the official said, adding some persons had abandoned the vehicle and fled, reported PTI.

The liquor and the vehicle were later seized, he said.

An FIR was registered against unidentified persons under provisions of the Maharashtra Prohibition Act for illegally transporting the liquor, the police added.

In another case, a police official on Monday said three persons were arrested for allegedly raping three minor sisters in Maharashtra's Palghar district, reported PTI.

Senior Inspector Jitendra Vankoti of Pelhar police station told PTI that the parents of the victims had separated and they were in the care of their father, who is an alcoholic.

"The three accused, Datta Kshirsagar (35), Nishad Khan (19) and Sayyed (27), took advantage of the distress of the three sisters and raped them repeatedly over the past one year. The three men were arrested on Sunday for rape and other offences under Indian Penal Code and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act provisions," he told PTI.

Meanwhile, a police official said that ten persons have been booked for attempt to murder, rioting and other offences for allegedly assaulting a hotelier in Manor in Palghar district, reported PTI.

Manor police station inspector Satish Shivarkar said that on June 14, the accused picked up a fight in the hotel after they came there for dinner with liquor bottles and were asked not consume alcohol in the eatery, reported PTI.

"They assaulted hotelier Naresh Varta (35) with iron rods and stones etc. He is recuperating in a hospital. Based on his complaint, 10 persons have been charged under IPC sections for attempt to murder, rioting, causing hurt with deadly weapons and other offences. No one has been arrested for far," he said.
