At a time when police officials across the country have earned themselves a reputation of being corrupt, a policeman has set an example by getting his own son arrested for liquor smuggling. 

Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) Prabhat Shankar on Thursday gave a tip off and his son was arrested with 25 bottles of India Made Foreign Liquor (IMFL) in Bihar's Darbhanga district.

Additional Superintendent of Police Dilnawaz Ahmed said that Shankar informed the police about his son carrying smuggled liquor following which he was arrested.

Shankar's son was carrying 25 IMFL bottles bearing mark of Haryana in his vehicle and was caught when the police checked his vehicle at a place under University police station here last night.

The accused Indrajit Kumar has been sent to jail under new Excise Act of the state where prohibition was imposed in April last year.

Shankar is currently posted at Ashok Paper Mill police station of Darbhanga district. 

Police have launched an intense drive across Bihar for liquor smuggling in view of Holi. This would be the first Holi when revellers cannot enjoy alcohol.
