Agartala, August 2: Officers of the task force team went to Maharajganj Bazar on Saturday. The task force team has sealed a wholesale rice shop in Khanna Market. The shop owner was opening a sack of rice of a well-known foreign brand, taking out the rice, inserting it into the ration rice, mixing it again and sewing the sack and selling it as rice of the famous band.

Sources said, the shop owner had been forging this rice for a long time. On Saturday, the shop owner was working as usual to open several sacks of rice of famous brand, take out the rice, put the ration rice in the sack and mix the sacks as before. The sacks are sewn in such a way that no one can see and understand the sacks. In this way, this trader has been cheating the buyers for a long time by inserting ration rice in the sacks of famous brand rice.

Eventually, the officers of the task force raided the place and caught the rice fraudsters. The shop owner fled as soon as he sensed the task force operation. The task force locked the shop door and sealed the shop. Strict action will be taken against the shop owner, sources said.

Meanwhile, the task force also took action against a wholesale potato and onion shop in Khanna Market at Maharajganj Bazar. The shop owner was fined Rs 3,000 for taking the wholesale price of potatoes at Rs.  29 instead of Rs. 28 per kg.
