Wine shops wooing women customers?

CHENNAI May 9. The trend of some wine shops advertising incentives ostensibly to attract women drinkers was raised at the weekly press conference of the city Police Commissioner and sparked off some humour today.

The Commissioner, K.Vijay Kumar in a lighter vein said ``What do you expect as an answer from me. I don't want to say something and be seen as anti-women. Well, if there is anything illegal like serving of loose liquor, the police is bound to take action'', he said.

As an add on question, another scribe told the Commissioner that special incentives were given for women at recreation clubs and wanted to know if it was permissible. Mr. Vijay Kumar just laughed the question away.
