JAIPUR — Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Saturday asked officials to ensure closure of liquor shops in the state at 8 pm. 

Chairing a meeting of excise and police officials here, he asked them to impose penalty if any liquor shop is found open after the assigned time.

The closure time for liquor shops was fixed at 8 pm in 2008 during Gehlot’s earlier term as the chief minister.

The CM also directed the officials to check smuggling of illegal liquor from neighbouring states and take action on complaints about charging more than the printed price on liquor bottles.

Senior officials of the excise and police department were present in the meeting.
