RAB seizes 6,600 liters of soyabean oil, fined Taka 3.20 lakh
Members of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) seized 6,600 liters of soyabean oil from warehouses and food stores in Natore on Friday evening.
On a tip, a team from the elite force went to Zonail Bazar in the district's Baraigram upazila to prevent manufactured food shortages by hoarding edible oil.
They discovered five warehouses and shops involved in manipulation throughout the 5.15-hour drive. They seized 6,600 liters of soyabean oil as a result, and the on-duty magistrate fined the proprietors Taka 3.20 lakh.
The team members also sold the stolen soyabean oil at a fixed price to the locals.
