It is alleged that these excise officials have forced open the liquor section and sold the liquor to the army.
However, the incident surfaced because CWE employees were not kept informed on what was going on.
It has also been revealed that the CCTV at the outlet had not functioned at the time this incident happened.
However, separate probes are being conducted on this incident by the CWE, Anuradhapura Police and Excise department.
