Press Trust of India  |  Kendrapara (Odisha) 

Two bootleggers were detained by a group of women campaigning against illicit trade at Ayatapur village in Kendrapara district, police said today.

The illicit traders were targeted and detained by the women who destroyed their hooch consignment yesterday, they said.

The two were rescued and subsequently arrested by the police for indulging in illegal trade, police said.

The women protesters said they were forced to take unto their hands as the authorities had "failed" to redress our grievance.
