Mobile court fines wholesaler in Ctg

CHATTOGRAM A mobile court has fined one wholesaler,

with a amount of Taka 20 thousand, for selling onions at inflated prices at

Khatunganj market in Chittagong.

The court, led by Executive Magistrate Towhidul Islam, conducted the drive

at Mahin Enterprises of Khatunganj today and found evidence of price

inflation.

Onions imported from Egypt and China were purchased at Tk 40-45 per kg.

However, the same onions were being sold at a much higher price, the

magistrate said.

Magistrate Touhidul Islam further said that drives against unjustified hike

in onion prices in Teknaf and Cox's Bazar region are continuing and hence

onions from Myanmar are being sold at lesser prices.
