Action against the illegal liquor mafia was taken in the capital on Wednesday. Under the special campaign, under the guidance of the Collector Bhopal Avinash Lavania and Assistant Excise Commissioner Sanjeev Dubey and Sajendra Mori, the District Excise Force raided at the Ratua Plateau, Ratanpur Nala and the Berasia Pathar.
