Srinagar, Aug 24, KDC: Locals from different areas of sumbal and Hajin of northern Kashmir’s Bandipora district are alleging that Kerosene depots are illegally dumping kerosene and are supplying to local public illegally for making illegitimate profits.
Locals from Sumbal told news agency KDC that we have not received kerosene from four months. Dealers are involved in pilferage of kerosene oil for its illegal sale. They alleged dealers of routine black marketing even as the issue was brought to the notice of authorities on several occasions. The locals have meanwhile also alleged that many other dealers across the length and breadth of the area are resorting to these practices from a long period and putting the general public in jeopardy.
Another, local Abdul Rashid told KDC that those involved in black marketing should be dealt with as per law. The government should intervene in this matter immediately, and a probe should be ordered, and he added. (KDC)
