Press Trust of India  |  Jaipur 

A total of 205 cartons of Indian Made Foreign Liquor (IMFL) were seized from a truck here on Friday, police said.

The liquor worth Rs 20 lakh was being smuggled to Gujarat from Haryana, they said.

Alcohol prohibition is in place in Gujarat since the state was formed in 1960.

Following a tip-off, a police team stopped the truck near Daulatpura and recovered the cartons of liquor from the vehicle.

The liquor was illegally being transported to Gujarat. The truck driver identified as Amit Jat tried to escape but was caught and arrested, police said, adding that the truck has also been kept in custody.
