A man was arrested in Raisen district of Madhya Pradesh on Saturday for allegedly making liquor from sanitiser liquid.

Alcohol is the main constituent of hand sanitisers.

The accused was identified as Indal Singh Rajput, a resident of Boriya Jagir village under Sultanpur police station limits, police said.

Liquor shops in the state are closed due to the ongoing lockdown.

Several distilleries in the state have been granted permission to manufacture sanitisers which are in high demand due to the coronavirus outbreak.

According to police, Rajput made liquor from a sanitiser which contained 72 per cent alcohol.

It was a unique case, said superintendent of police Monika Shukla.

Rajput was booked under the Excise Act, she said.
