(MENAFN- IANS) Gurugram, April 4 (IANS) Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, the Deputy Commissioner of Gurugram, Nishant Kumar Yadav, who's also the District Election Officer (DEO), on Thursday directed the excise officials to keep a close watch on illegal supply and sale of liquor across the district.

The officials should also check the records of the authorised liquor vends in the district from time to time, he said.
