Police said the seizure was made when the spirit was being unloaded from a lorry bearing Tamil Nadu registration plates. The spirit, which was found in plastic cans of 35-litre capacity, was concealed under bricks.
The Circle Inspector (Neyyatinkara), Rajan John, said that the K.M.K. Canal was being used by spirit smugglers to circumvent scrutiny at the Parassala and police checking on the National Highway. The smugglers used sand-mining boats for the purpose. The KMK Canal joins the Thiruvallam backwaters near the resort area of Poovar, he said.
The Peroorkada police have arrested a 38-year-old man on charges of attempting to cheat a motorist by posing as a policeman. The accused was identified as Ajith Kumar of Chuzhampala.
