On August 8, police received a tip-off that Ajgar would be delivering illegal liquor from Haryana at various parts of north Delhi, Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) A K Singla said.

Subsequently, a trap was laid in on the Palla-Bakhtawarpur Road and the vehicle, loaded with illicit liquor, was intercepted, the officer said. He said Ajgar was arrested and the illicit liquor along with the vehicle was seized.

During interrogation, the accused revealed that he worked for the person called Vikas. Singla said.

He also told said that Vikas was arrested in two cases earlier, the officer said.

Police said the accused has been in the illegal trade for the last two years and was arrested twice this year for bootlegging.

Ajgar used to procure illicit liquor "only for sale in Haryana" from different godowns in Sonipat. He used to then supply these consignments to people in various parts of Delhi after taking a hefty commission, Singla said.

Police said Ajgar used to supply the liquor to bootleggers in the Saroop Nagar and Jahangir Puri areas in Delhi.

One cartoon containing 12 liquor bottles costs them Rs 500 from Haryana and they sold it for Rs 1,000 to 1,500 per carton, police said.
