While unattended alcohol bottles are often ignored by many, the tale of Gujarat is quite different. Gujarat has been a dry state for the longest of time. The state prohibits the manufacture, storage, sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages and the illegal alcohol in the car was utilised by the locals.

Twitter is full of hilarious jokes on the entire incident as well as sympathetic tweets on how it may not qualify as looting. “it is like looting bisleri in the middle of the desert, not a big crime,” one Twitter user commented on the picture. However, there is no information regarding what exactly happened to the driver or occupants of the car that had the illegal booze.

Gujarat has special laws governing the consumption of alcohol and NRIs as well as tourists visiting the state are legally allowed to access special permits to consume liquor in the dry state. Gujarat is the only Indian state with a death penalty for the manufacture and sale of homemade liquor that results in fatalities. Strangely this is not the first case of such loot in the state. People have been trying to gain access to liquor in similar accidents in various parts of Gujarat.
