After the accident, police recovered the cartons of liquor from the Wagon R vehicle (AS 01 DF 1960) which was heading towards Rangiya.
After the accident occurred, the injured person was rushed to the Rangiya Primary Health Center by the locals of the area when they noticed the cartons in the vehicle contained illegal liquor.
The locals immediately informed the Gandhibari outpost about the illegal liquor, following the call a police team rushed to the spot and arrested the driver of the vehicle, Pabitra Kalita, and brought him along with the vehicle to the Gandhibari police outpost.
