Bottling the sanitiser in liquor quarters became a mess for the excise department. A man drank the sanitiser assuming it to be liquor and fell unconscious. The medical team somehow saved his life.
The excise department manufactured sanitiser and used liquor bottles for the sanitiser. This created quite a lot of confusion for the not so literate people. Until now the sanitiser was to be supplied directly via godowns to specific industries. But now it has been made available in the local market as well. A man from Banswara almost risked his life after drinking the sanitiser as it is available in liquor bottles.
The department is now circulating messages making people aware that it is not liquor but sanitiser which has been made using hydrogen peroxide, spirit and glycerine. This combination is extremely hazardous if consumed as it can damage the food pipe and cause ulcers.
The sanitiser bottles with the GSM logo have been supplied in Udaipur, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Bhilwara and Ajmer. People must be extremely cautious about the sanitiser and not confuse it for liquor. It may be noted that the state government has authorised the factories falling under Sriganganagar Sugar mills (Jaipur, Joshpur, Udaipur, Kota and Hanumangarh) and Globus, Agro-Biotech Industries, ADS and Vintage Distellery for manufacturing sanitiser to deal with the shortage in market.
