Children as young as 10-year-old enter the illegal hooch trade here and even start consuming it at this age. Their children also assist them in the supply of illegal liquor. Thousands of litres of illegal liquor is manufactured and sold in the village everyday under the nose of the police and excise department, alleged villagers. At least 10-20% of the villagers are involved in illegal liquor trade and addicted to it its consumption. The excise department will soon co-ordinate with the social welfare department for the initiative, added Modwell .
