Son Gets Father in Bihar Village Arrested For Consuming Alcohol in Dry State
Ex-Armyman Rambihari Singh of Babhniyav village under Jagdishpur police station would often beat up family members after consuming liquor. He did the same on Tuesday night and started thrashing his relatives.
Patna: A retired Armyman in Bihar’s Bhojpur district was jailed on Wednesday after his son dialled the local police from Delhi and complained about his inebriated father creating a ruckus in the house.

Consuming liquor is a non-bailable offence in Bihar ever since the Nitish Kumar government imposed a complete ban on alcohol.

Ex-Armyman Rambihari Singh of Babhniyav village under Jagdishpur police station would often beat up family members after consuming liquor. He did the same on Tuesday night and started thrashing his relatives.

His wife called up her son Bittu Singh, who works for a private company in Delhi and informed him about his father. Bittu in turn called up the Jagdishpur Police station and complained about Rambihari.

The police acted swiftly and arrested Rambihari from his village and a local court in Arrah sent him to jail on Wednesday after conducting medical tests. The tests confirmed that he had indeed consumed liquor.

Assistant Sub Inspector Baidyanath Chaudhary told News18 that this was a first in the district since the state-wide ban on alcohol.

“Now mobile numbers are written on the electric transformers in every village, which makes it easier for the villagers to inform the police about liquor consumption or liquor trade,” Chaudhary said.
