Road rollers and bulldozers were used to destroy 180,000 bottles of "Indian Made Foreign Liquor" (IMFL), under the supervision of 200 policemen, in the prosperous state of Gujarat.

Gujarat is the only Indian state still "enforcing" total prohibition. And the alcohol had been siezed from illegal possessors in the State's main city, Ahmedabad.

The State had been trying to sell the liquor, valued at Rs40m (US$0.8M) in neighbouring states. However, since it is illegal anyway and sourced from thousands of seizures, buyers were reluctant to purchase alcohol which they was genuine.
