Election Commission officials seized 5,964 bottles of illicit liquor from a godown allegedly owned by AAP’s Uttam Nagar candidate Naresh Balyan last night.

"A total of 5964 bottles (4473 litres) of Haryana-made liquor was seized from a godown by flying squad and police in a late night joint-operation," said a senior EC official.

As per initial investigations, the godown belonged to AAP’s candidate Balyan, but they are yet to ascertain the ownership of the godown located in Uttam Nagar area, poll officials said.

"Balyan has not been named in the FIR registered at Uttam Nagar Police Station and we are investigating if the godown was owned by him or not. Once our investigation is completed, we will then add name in the FIR," the official said.
