Submitted by alvin on Wed, 2016-04-27 10:01 Patna (Bihar): Seven persons were arrested for allegedly consuming liquor in a hotel room here last night. The arrested individuals, who had come to Patna to attend a marriage, were partying in room number 203 of Hotel Panash, when the police raided the room and caught them red-handed. Several liquor bottles were also seized during the raid. Earlier, Congress MLA from Narkatiaganj in Bihar's West Champaran district in Bihar drew flak after a sting operation showed him on camera allegedly offering liquor to his guests, despite a total prohibition imposed in the state. Bihar Government had on April 5 banned liquor completely in the state, making it the fourth dry state in the country after Gujarat, Kerala and Nagaland. (ANI)
