Excise dept in Rs 40cr scam: Opposition

Opposition leader Manohar Parrikar on Thursday alleged that the state excise department is involved in a Rs 40 crore alcohol scam spreading across three other states. Parrikar told the assembly during Question Hour that he had evidence to prove his allegations. He demanded that the case be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). He said he would depose only before the CBI.

"I have done research over the last three months. I have got excise gate passes and have also availed information under the Right to Information (RTI) Act about gate passes issued by the excise department. None of the gate passes in my possession have been mentioned in the information given through RTI," he said. Parrikar further alleged that the Goa excise department has been carrying out the scam in connivance with the excise departments of Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
