Women protest against liquor shop in village

Press Trust of India  |  Muzaffarnagar (UP) 

A group of women staged a dharna and blocked road traffic in Bopada here protesting against the shifting of a shop from near a highway to their village.

The protest took place yesterday and traffic movement on the Mansurpur-Shahpur road was affected for several hours, an official said.

The shop was shifted to the village following the Supreme Court's order shutting outlets and bars within 500 metres of national and state to tackle the problem of drunken driving.

The official said that security has been tightened in the area.
