Scores of petro-filled drums on roof and jerrycans under vehicular seats

Metropolitan Police Range, Office (MPRO), had directed the highway checkpoints to keep a close tab on the vehicles following information that a Munal Deluxe was ferrying a huge amount of petroleum products to the capital from Kakadvitta.

According to SP Bishwa Raj Pokharel, spokesperson of the MPRO, they had received information that Munal Deluxe with registration no Na 3 Kha 3481 was heading to Kathmandu with a huge amount of petroleum products.

The vehicle entered the Kathmandu Valley via Thankot checkpoint. It came to Kalanki and to Tinkune. At 3 pm a police team started chasing down the vehicle and finally impounded it while the drums of diesel and petrol were being off-loaded at Koteshwar.

During inspection, police found several drums of petroleum products on the roof of the bus.

According to SP Pokharel, the police squad recovered 2,190 liters of petrol, 1,460 liters of diesel and 855 liters of kerosene. Police have arrested Bijaya Yadav of Dhanusha and Sabnam Acharya and Saru Timalsina of Jhapa on the charged of black-marketing.

The black-marketing of cooking gas, petroleum products and other food-stuffs has soared up after India imposed blockade on Nepal. Nepal Police had been maintaining soft policy on the sale of petroleum products and selling them at the government rate after recovery at the beginning.

The government has drawn flaks from various quarters after many a vehicle were found plying along the road while license holder petrol pumps have been brought to a grinding halt.

Of late, the number of arrested for their involvement in the black-marketing is on the rise.

Over the last one week, as many as 41 people with 5,000 liters of petrol and 1000 liters of diesel have fallen into police net.

It is learnt that the petrol is sold for Rs 500 per liter
