Agartala, July 1, 2023: The persistent issue of the black market for fuel gas in the state has caught the attention of authorities. Despite the growing concerns, officials from the food department have been slow to address the situation, leading to an alarming rise in the illegal trade of fuel gas.

In a bid to curb this illicit activity, the Sadar Sub-Divisional Magistrate’s Office, through the food department, conducted surprise raids on several restaurants and hotels in the Amtali area, including Hapania, on Saturday.

During the operation, officials meticulously inspected around 20 to 25 establishments in Hapania and Amtali, uncovering eight illegally stored LPG gas cylinders. The hotels and restaurants found in possession of these illegal cylinders will face legal consequences for their actions. The food department officials have emphasized that such operations will be ongoing to combat the black market for fuel gas effectively.

The primary objective behind this operation was to put a halt to the rampant black market activities surrounding LPG gas. The authorities are determined to take strict action against those involved and ensure that the illegal trade of fuel gas is curbed. The food department remains committed to maintaining a proactive stance in tackling this issue and safeguarding the interests of the public.
