Reports claim that illegal liquor traders have come up with various code words for liquor so that they can provide them to those who need it and in the process also keep their business running.
These words have been assigned to a particular brand of alcohol so as to convey information related to the kind of alcohol one needs.
According to Police demand for delivery of one-litre milk at home means that the customer has ordered for a large bottle of liquor and word Jahangir means he needs Indian made foreign liquor (IMFL).
“Apart from Jehangir, one can also have easy access to ‘Fakruddin’, code word for the banned codeine-based Corex cough syrup, which is widely used as intoxicant, at Jokihat, some 20 km from Araria,” – Police
“Dial the number, and it will be delivered at your doorstep in maximum 20 minutes. All you need is to get your phone numbers registered with the suppliers use the correct code word.” – Police Source
Other code words used are ‘Fruity’ for IMFL tetrapacks, ‘chota syrup’ means a small bottle and ‘bada syrup’ means a large bottle.
