The timing and legality on the case would be decided later when the order comes.
The Supreme Court in its order on March 31 had said that liquor vends within 500 metres of national and state highways would have to shut down effective from April 1. But, the apex court had reduced the distance from 500 metres to 220 metres in municipal areas having population less than 20,000.
The court order had given exemptions to Sikkim, Meghalaya and Himachal Pradesh.
