Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Over 400 State Excise officials including excise sub-inspectors, head constables and constables, who were on mass leave demanding promotion were instructed by the Excise Commissioner to return immediately to duty. He warned that failing to immediately return to duty would lead to action being taken against them under the relevant rules.
