According to the excise department, the officers were identified as assistant excise superintendent Madhu Babu and S Karna, a circle inspector.
The excise commissioner transferred Madhu Babu and asked him to report at the excise headquarters in Vijayawada.
On the other hand, Karna received a charge memo from his senior officials for ignoring the thefts taking place at government-owned liquor stores. Previously, an excise department constable was suspended for his alleged involvement in the theft of liquor bottles from a government liquor shop at Narasaraopet.
The government also removed liquor shop supervisor and watchman for their involvement in the theft. Around Rs 4.90 lakh worth of liquor bottles were stolen from the shop.
Prior to that, other erring excise officials were suspended for illegally selling liquor at exorbitant price in East Godavari district.
On March 30, excise department circle inspector Reddi Trinath was suspended from service on charges of looting liquor from a government liquor outlet at Pedaparthi point under Rajamahendravaram excise division.
