Authorities on Friday claimed to have tightened noose against the mutton dealers including butchers, saying that the Department of Food, Civil Supplies, and Consumer Affairs (FCSCA) has filed 131 police complaints across Kashmir Valley this month.

Director FCSCA, Bashir Ahmad Khan told a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that the department has filed at least 131 police complaints against the mutton dealers in the Valley. He added that sixty-seven among these complaints have been filed in the Srinagar district only.

Khan further claimed that the department has been taking action against the mutton dealers including the butchers and many have been arrested so far. “The mutton dealers are doing their normal work. But soon after the action was taken, they were doing their business only in morning and evening hours,” he said, adding that the department has started taking action in the morning and evening hours also.

“The butchers and other mutton dealers are befooling the people by claiming they are on strike. But the fact is they are doing their business normally,” he said. (KNO)
