Moga, July 16

An alleged paddy scam worth Rs 14-crore has come to the fore at Baghapurana city in the district.

Owners of three rice mills — Akshit Agro Food, Surya Agro Food and Keshav Agro Food — have collectively siphoned off paddy, which was allotted to them by Pungrain.

Food and Civil Supplies Controller (DFSC) Sartaj Singh said 9.56 lakh bags of paddy were allotted to these rice mills by Pungrain, but during initial physical verification, at least 1.24 lakh bags were found missing from the stock.

An FIR has been registered against the rice millers and their anticipatory bail have been rejected by the District and Sessions Court.
