Additional Deputy Commissioner Tariq Ali has been tasked as Focal Person to coordinate with the team of Collector Modern Custom Collectorate to take action against those involved in the sale of illegal and sub-standard oil in the district and carry out raids against such petrol pumps and petrol agencies functioning in other parts, towns and places of the district.
It is a well-known fact that majority of sellers are openly selling smuggled Iranian petrol. Earlier sometime back, Assistant Commissioner had raided and sealed ten petrol pumps involved in the sale of sub-standard petrol.
However further action was stopped on the threat of traders to resort to strike against the action. The citizens complained that contaminated oil was the main cause of damaging the engines of their vehicles and it required strict action to prevent the sale of sub-standard oil.
