Smuggled Burmese Salt Seized by
When challenged, the salt carriers could not show any legal document to the Coast Guards in favour of the Burmese salt. The salt was being smuggled into for processing at salt mills across the country, said the CG press release.
The Coast Guards decided to carry a drive against smuggling of Burmese salt to protect the interest of the local salt producers.
Another Coast Guards team also seized 100,000 kilogram of illegal Burmese salt from a boat in Gahira coast and arrested six persons in this connection last week. Later the six arrested were handed over to local police station, the source said. #
