Patiala, April 11

A Patiala Police team today confiscated 11 trucks allegedly bringing wheat from other states to be sold at MSP in Punjab. In collaboration with the Market Committee, Patiala, the police are analysing the crop produce that is coming from other states to the district.

Patiala SSP Vikram Jeet Duggal said directions for protecting crop markets and crop produce had been given to all DSPs and SHOs. A Ghanaur police team identified 11 trucks which were bringing wheat from other states. These trucks were sent to the Market Committee for verification. Further investigation would be carried out as per the Market Committee’s reports.

“Information was received that a few miscreants had been supplying and selling wheat from other states in the markets of Punjab. Following this, a team was deputed to supervise the checkpoints to ensure that no one could bring the wheat from other states to Punjab for the purpose of selling it in the markets,” said the SSP. — TNS
