A Ugandan student Marius Teddy Fionah, was arrested by Karwar police on Monday night for allegedly smuggling Goan liquor. A lady is a BBA student of Garden City College Bengaluru and was taken into custody on the charges of smuggling the liquor from Goa. Here is the report.
Police have detained about 10 cases of liquor from Marius when she was waiting for a private bus at Karwar to proceed to Bengaluru at around 9pm on Monday. Immediately acting on the information, police went to the office of the private bus company and seized the cases she was carrying and was brought to police station. She just refused to answer the cops’ questions.
Police later found her college identity card. She then informed police saying that she was not smuggling liquor but carrying it to Bengaluru for a party with her friends.
Another Ugandan woman who said to be her sister came to the police station and said that Marius had informed her about being detained by police. But when she saw media persons she left from the police station.
Police stated that they would check the information provided by Marius and will take action against her.
Though, it is not yet clear if she bought the liquor in Goa and then brought it to Karwar or she purchased it in Karwar itself. But, police refused to provide any more information about her.
