Sangrur, September 20

The police arrested three persons and seized 14,000 kg of stolen wheat from their truck last evening. Two days ago, the Sherpur police had registered a case against six persons, including two Markfed employees, after wheat went missing from a local godown.

Dr Sandeep Garg, SSP, said two days ago the police had received a tip-off that 280 bags containing 14,000 kg of wheat had gone missing from a Markfed godown from Sherpur.

“Last evening the police arrested truck driver Bahadur Singh and owner of truck Harpreet singh and a local, Parveen Kumar, near Sherpur and seized the missing wheat from their truck. During investigations, it came to light that Markfed employees used to sell official wheat stock to a private person at lower rate and later showed the missing wheat as stolen,” the SSP said. — TNS
