Belthangady: More than 14 quintals of Anna Bhagya ration, which was illegally stored in a private grocery shop near Gerukatte here, was seized by government officials on June 1 at around 5 pm in the presence of Tahsildar.
The government-subsidized rice meant for distribution at the fair price shops for BPL families was found at the SV Traders, a private grocery shop. The matter came to light when the sacks were being transferred onto a vehicle for transportation.
A complaint was later filed with the Belthandagdy Police about the illegal storage and pilfering of government rations.
