Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh): Two employees of a liquor shop in Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh were booked for allegedly selling stock beyond permissible limits and abusing a buyer who asked for a receipt, police said on Sunday.

An official said this may be the first case of its kind in the state after the government made it mandatory from September 1 for such outlets to issue a cash memo to buyers.
