4 held for LPG ‘black-marketing’
Ganderbal, Jan 16: Police has seized 76 LPG cylinders and arrested four persons on the charges of black-marketing at Wayil Ganderbal area on Sunday.
According to the police, acting upon the complaints about black-marketing of cooking gas, four persons including an employee of a gas agency were arrested when they were unloading LPG cylinders from a truck (JK01C-3644) and allegedly selling them to an individual Me’raj-ud-Din Waza son of Habibullah Waza of Manigam. The cylinders, police said were being loaded in another vehicle (JK01J-5884).
The other three arrested persons include Farooq Ahmad Parray son of Abdul Rehman of Beehama, Ganderbal, Ghulam Hassan Khan son Muhammad Sultan of Ajas Bandipore and Shakeel Ahmad Dar son of Ghulam Muhammad Dar of Chattabal Srinagar.
“Instead of delivering these cylinders to consumers, the Gas Agency was selling them to an individual at exorbitant rates thus creating artificial crisis of LPG gas in the district,” police said adding they were receiving frequent complaints about the shortage of cooking gas in the area.
SP Ganderbal, Imtiyaz Hussain said police had launched a manhunt to nab another culprit Aijaz Ahmad Wani of Fateh Kadal Srinagar.
