KOCHI: Excise sleuths on Wednesday arrested the assistant general manager in charge of the Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) duty free and retail section in connection with a video advertisement offering a sari for every purchase of a whiskey brand during Onam.

Officials said the case was registered for producing an advertisement which promoted liquor sale, in violation of the provisions of Section 55(h) of the Kerala Abkari Act. Acting on a complaint received by Excise Commissioner Rishi Raj Singh, the AGM was summoned to the Excise office in Aluva and was released later on bail. CIAL officials said the ad campaign was in line with similar campaigns by other major airports across the country.

With the issue triggering a controversy, they have now withdrawn it from its official social media accounts.
