In a video viral on social media, the foreign national can be seen emptying a bottle of liquor in the presence of a team of police personnel at Kovalam, a top tourist destination in southern Kerala, on Friday. The incident took place when the foreigner was returning after buying liquor from a Bevco outlet in nearby Vellar on his two-wheeler.

The police team stopped the foreigner’s two-wheeler and found liquor bottles in it during investigation. When he was asked to show the bill, the foreigner told him that he had forgotten to collect the bill from the Bevco outlet. However, he insisted that he could show the bill.

On the other hand, the foreigner expressed his displeasure at the policemen for spoiling the New Year celebrations. He said that Goa is more friendly to tourists than Kerala.
