    What business do Police have in this? This may be ethically/ religiously wrong but it's not an offense if the buyer is an adult.

    As per the law...Consumption of alcohol and smoking is injurious to health.. do not understand the logic, then why the govt. is selling the same .. is it to make revenue at the cost of humans health and make them to addict..?

    Find its not right to offer a liquor as a prize .Instead they can make some money or some sweets ,or hundred coconuts etc .Liquor is more attracting men ,.Later with it also make big problem.

    While strongly denouncing this particular act; if I am not mistaken, there are many religious places dedicated to different Gods where only alcohol is accepted as the offering!! The above is a very personal opinion based on verified information available in the public domain; please do your own research and analysis!

    Without pumping in fuel how can one get charged up for non-stop dancing and entertaining the public?

    Public act like this especially on the auspicious occasion is condemnable.... Police did the right thing... In churches we have events like hooking the beer bottle and that is one of the many other activities... Also there is no ticket printed or anything of that sort... Finally there will be a Kombo (rooster) draw...
